this is consuming to much of my time, I may be overlooking somthing simple....Ive been trying to use calculus to solve it ( also unsuccessfully)

ok

0 = 1-(2x)(arctan(x))

ive been trying to do sort of an algebriac substituion...trying to integrate to obtain the arclength in terms of x .....which I relly dont think will actually get me anywhere. be interested to see just how much time ive wastedπ΅
