x = t + cot t(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = t - sin t

0 ≤ t ≤ 2π

Somehow the answer is:

2π

∫sqrt(3 - 2*sin t - 2*cos t) dt

0

I'm afraid I don't know where to start on this one. I don't need someone to walk me through it (probably) but a point in the right direction would be appreciated.
