Find the length of the curve
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Why is there only an absolute value only on the denominator?
Edit: I see the top will automatically get rid of the negative. I'm guessing I'll need to involve limits for this. I'll do it and say what happened.
Ok so I did it and got it wrong again.
(My work is attached)
Edit: I saw a mistake on the L = (before L = 12) where it should be a negative instead of positive for the thing after the first thing that I slashed off but I still get L = 52 which is wrong as well!
Oh my gosh! I'm so stupid, my eyes were thinking that the next step was still an integral! (It's kind of like a blind spot if you close one eye and look at a dot on a piece of graph paper; you won't see the dot because your brain fills in the dot's space with what it thinks it will be which is more graph paper.)
