1. Find the exact length of the curve analytically by antidifferentiation. You will need to simplify the integrand algebraically before finding an antiderivative.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = the integral from -2 to x of the SQUARE ROOT (3t^4-1)dt, -2 < x < -1

note that the "<" is actually less than or equal to, don't know how to post that.

For this one, do I just plug the x in? x_x I'm really clueless on how to start

2. Find the length of the curve.

y = the integral of 0 to x of SQUARE ROOT (cos(2t))dt from x = 0 to x = pi/4

The problem with me is I know how to do it in terms of y and x, but I am terrible at parametrics.

If you can, please help me with any of the above =) thanks
