# Arc Length Of Parametric Curve

I attached the problem as a file:

Where did the trig functions go? I sifted through the different trig identities and formulas, but couldn't find anything that I could use. What should I do?

$\sin^2 t+\cos^2 t=1$ for any $t$. –  Artem Nov 28 '12 at 14:25
Oh, they just factored out $e^{-2t}$, and then combined the trig terms together? –  Mack Nov 28 '12 at 14:36

\begin{align} & (\sin(t)+\cos(t))^2+(\sin(t)-\cos(t))^2 \\ & = \sin^2(t)+\cos^2(t)+2\cos(t)\sin(t)+\sin^2(t)+\cos^2(t)-2\cos(t)\sin(t) \\ & =2(\sin^2(t)+\cos^2(t)) \\ & =2 \end{align}
