Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All I know is that it is an ellipse. But I don't know how to set up an integral. I think it would go from x=2 to x=+2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find the area of the ellipse? What level of calculus is this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not to find the area. But to just set up the integral. Calculus 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Set up an integral that will give the length of the following curve. Setup the integral so that you integrate from the smallest x value on the curve to the largest.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the correct answer is: 2sqrt(1+((x^(2))/(164x^(2))))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but you'll want to make sure you write the whole integral with the limits of integration. An answer would be... \[s=2\int\limits_{2}^{2}\sqrt{1+x^2/(164x^2)}dx\] However, you could change the 2 in front of the integral to a 4 and change the limits of integration from 2 to 2 to 0 to 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks alot! I kept looking back at what I was doing wrong and I forgot the 2 in front of the integral
