You're looking good, except you did not square your 3 in the radical after you made the sub. Then, it simplifies to:

Obviously, the square root of tan^2(t) gives tan(t). The denominator cancels with the 3sec(t) in the dt
Well, you don't actually need any sort of trig. identity, so put and you'll turn your integral into an arctangent.
Yes, of course, but perhaps the poster is required to use trig sub. That was my impression anyway.
