    \[x=\frac{ y^3 }{ 6 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 2y }\]

    \[\frac{ dx}{ dy }=\frac{ y^2 }{ 2 }-\frac{ 1 }{ y^2}\]

    \[\int\limits_{1}^{2}\sqrt{1+((\frac{ y^2 }{ 2 })-\frac{ 1 }{ y^2 })^2} dy\]

    Woops the 2 should still be there on the second term. A -1 came down from the power rule.

    The problem at the very top seems to be different than the one you formatted below it, I'm confused..

    Yes that's the correct derivative. Don't use quotient rule, easier to use power rule.\[\large \left(\frac{1}{2y}\right)'\quad = \quad \left(\frac{1}{2}y^{-1}\right)' \quad = \quad -\frac{1}{2}y^{-2}\]

    Do you have 2 separate problems listed? This is rather confusing....
