Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Start with the derivative of y, sin/cos, then use trig identity to get the two term into one. You will be left taking the integral of one trig function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You forgot to square it after you ploged it in One minus tan squared is sec squared I think, take the root and then the integral of sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y' = sin/cos y' ^2 = sin^2/cos^2 = tan^2 trig identity sec^2 = 1+tan^2 sqrt(1+y'^2) = sqrt(sec^2) = sec integral sec = ln(sec+tan) +c
