Area under the curve!
I would really appreciate it if you helped me out with this question.
Find the are of the region shaded in the diagram.
The equation of the curve is y=3x^8+5
I found the x points as -1 and 1 but i cant seem to get further.
y2 = 8
Area of the shaded region = Integration(y2-y1)dx over -1 to 1 will give you the area. This integration is very straight forward.
could you please make it more clear.
y2 = 8 is the straight line in your diagram below which the shaded region is shown.
the method is the same as the other problem you posted ...
