and dy/dx= [tex] \frac{9}{2 \sqrt{9x-18}}[/tex]

so [tex]S = 2 \pi \int_2^6 \sqrt{9x-18} \sqrt{1+ \frac{81}{36x+72}}dx[/tex]

If this is all right..then I am stuck :grumpy:

Any help?

To integrate, you could mulitply the terms in the square roots and manipulate them algebraically to get something simpler.

[tex]S = 6 \pi \int_2^6 \sqrt{x-1/4} }dx[/tex]

Using the substitution u = x+1/4 you will get your answer

Hope it helps.

Also, since [tex]x+\frac{1}{4}[/tex] is linear, you can use the standard formula:-

[tex]\int(ax+b)^ndx=\frac{(ax+b)^{n+1}}{a(n+1)}+c[/tex], where n is unequal to -1.

[tex]S=6\pi\int_2^6\sqrt{x+\frac{1}{4}}dx[/tex]

How did you get this?

Consider, [tex]\sqrt{9x-18} \sqrt{1+\frac{81}{36x-72}}=[(9x-18)(1+\frac{81}{36x-72})]^\frac{1}{2}[/tex]

Carry out some factorization and re-expression and you should get what I got!
