Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Katelyn on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 12:01am.

Given the equation xy = 2, set up an integral to find the length of path from x = a to x = b and enter the integrand below.

I did the integral from b to a and set it equal to the sqrt(1+4/x^4), because I found y to equal 2/x and the derivative to be -2/x^2, but I think I am solving the problem wrong.
