A steady wind blows a kite due west. The kite's height above ground from horizontal position x = 0 to x = 60 ft is given by y = 150 − 1/40(x − 50)^2.

Find the distance traveled by the kite. (Round your answer to one decimal place.)

THe answer is supposed to be 94.2 ft but I cannot get to that.

Also I am not really familiar with the sinh and cosh functions so please be really specific.
