The length of the curve is found as
Notice your equation becomes
Find the exact length of the curve defined by 0= x^3 - 8xy + 3 from (1,(2/6)) to (3, (10/6)) .
How is this problem to be approached. Do I turn the given into a linear equation and use the given x values in a definate integral?
Not sure what to do.
Your guidance is appreciated.
I can read the problem again, but that wouldn't bring me any close to a solution would it? The problem is exactly as I stated it. I'm just trying the most constructive way to approach this. I suppose I will have to ask my calculus professor to elaborate so that I know what it is she wants me to do here.
