1. \begin{aligned}\frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{x-x^2}}&=\frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{\frac{1}{4}(1-(1-4x+4x^2))}}\\
&=\frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{\tfrac{1}{4}(1-(1-2x)^2}}\\
&=\frac{2x-1}{\tfrac{1}{2}\sqrt{1-(1-2x)^2}}\\
&=2\frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{1-(2x-1)^2}}\end{aligned}

Now just let $\varphi=2x-1$ and see the next problem.

2. $\int\frac{dx}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}$

Let $\sin(\theta)=x$

3. $\int\arcsin(x)dx$

Let $\arcsin(x)=\varphi$

....or you could have made the simple substitution $z=x-x^2$ which would convert the integral into $-\int z^{-\frac{1}{2}}\,dz$.
