Don't have any real idea how to go about this one, even thought its probably really easy... thnanks for the help

Find the length of the curve:

x=[3y^(4/3)]-(3/32)y^(2/3)

-27<y<27 (both those are less than or equal to)

thanks

thanks for the reply! Although, when I do that integral I get 0 (which makes sense), yet the program I'm using tells me that 0 isnt the right answer, any ideas? Edit: nevermind, I figured it out, thanks for your help!
