    Are you sure you entered that correctly..? This is the solution Wolfram is giving, http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integral+sqrt%281%2B16x%5E4%29dx There must be a mistake somewhere in there.

    we are trying to find the arc length. i think.

    So find the arclength of this function, \(\large f(x)=\sqrt{1+16x^4}\) From \(\large a\) to \(\large b\) ?

    i'll type the text verbatim from the book. what differentiable function have an arc length on the interval [a,b] given by the following integrals?

    The formula for arc length is,\[\large \int\limits ds \qquad = \qquad \int\limits \sqrt{1+\color{orangered}{\left(\frac{dy}{dx}\right)^2}}dx\] And we're given this,\[\large \int\limits \sqrt{1+\color{orangered}{16x^4}}dx\]
