Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK Ramo, one more time pull up the arc length formula and stick this number the derivative where you see dy/dx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright after i plug it into the formula to get \[\int\limits_{2}^{3}1+((64x^7+256)/(256x^4)^2dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like my tutor like to say: "You have to clean it up." The square goes through the top and the bottom. The bottom is easy, just plug 256 in calculator and square it. (x^4)^2 just multiply 2x4. The top is, oh well, back to college algebra, sum of two squares.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Might be a mistake in the numerator. Show us again where you went from original problem to derivative.
