(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the arc length of the equation [tex]y^2=4(x+4)^3[/tex] from [tex]x=0[/tex] to [tex]x=2[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

[tex]L=\int_{a}^{b}\sqrt{1+f'(x)}dx[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]L=\int_{0}^{2}\sqrt{1+9(x+4)}dx[/tex]

which simplifies in to

[tex]L=\int_{0}^{2}\sqrt{9x+37}dx[/tex]

and i'm stuck there--how should i try to integrate that?
