Find the area of the region between the curves
I tried doing this a couple times, but keep on getting an incorrect answer.
That was all the information given to me in the question. As for my work.. I tried to divide the 2 curves @ the intersection, and tried to integrate them seperately from 0 to 5. I got a ln(0) when adding/subtracting the areas...and really don't know what to do with that.
This is not what I consider showing all your work. Draw the graphs of the two curves, calculate the x-coordinate of where they intersect, set up the integrals in the usual way and do the calculation.
If you need more help, show ALL your working and say where you're stuck - don't just give a thumbnail description of what you've tried to do.
