Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Caroline on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 5:42pm.

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.
