    \[ds =\sqrt{(x')^2+(y')^2}\]

    well, in this case i spose fx and fy for partials

    so i take the partial of both x and y with respect to t and plus that under a square root next to the function f(x,y) and integrate?

    yes, but dont forget to replace x and y with their t equations within f f(x,y)=3x+4y^2;x=2t-1, y=t+5 f(t)=3(2t-1)+4(t+5)^2

    so i would just get a sqrt(5) from the ds, then the function would read integral of (3(2t-1)+4(t+5)^2)dt (times the sqrt(5))?

    yep, but put the sqrt5 inside the integral
