Hey,

So I'm a bit confused on how an answer was reached. The question states:

Find a curve through the point (1,1) whose length integral is given by:

. From here I try to use point-slope formula, where m =

(which comes from taking the square root of

. Now, I apply the point-slope formula to try and get the equation of the curve, using:

y - y1 = m(x-x1) ==> y - (1) =

After adding 1 to both sides and distributing the

to the (x - 1), I end up with something like:

... which isn't anything like the y =

answer it SHOULD be.

Can someone point out where I went wrong?
