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?
