Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone help me here!

dy/dx = 1/(x.sqrt(x^2-1)) , x>0 Note y = pi when x = 2

Here is what I did:

Let u = x^2 - 1

x^2 = u + 1

Substituting this in the above yields:

dy/dx = 1/x.sqrt(u)

Differentiating: u = x^2-1

du = 2x.dx

x = du/2.dx

Then,

dy/dx= 2/sqrt(u).du

I don't know if this is rite.

Plz help me!
