He is numerade here, so we're going to use the arc length formula. So we have y is equal to 2 x minus 5, and this gives us a derivative of 2 point using the arc ling formula we get. L is equal to from negative 1 to 3 square root of 1 plus 2 squared dx, and this equals square root of 5 x from negative 1 to 3, which gives us 4 square root of 5.
