Hey guys. Any help integrating this function would be much appreciated, so I can apply the shell method. Area bound by the curves: I just don't know where to begin integrating that first function. Thanks!

Yes please.
You can not integrate it in terms of functions we know. see : integrate ( e^[ (-x^2)/2 ] ) - Wolfram|Alpha Post the whole question, please.

Hi, Do you want to find the area of the function between the 3 lines, or do you want to rotate the area about an axis (shells) ?

What would I need to integrate then? Maybe I can make more sense of that.

Is this what I would be integrating? The x as the width, and the function as the height? Sorry, I'm really slow with LaTeX. Never used it before.

Okay, so I've gotten as far as this: Can I bring the in front of the integral, as it is a constant? If so, I can integrate the rest easily.

Well, after integrating, I am getting the following: However, my book key says I should be getting this: Any suggestions? Thanks for all the help so far.
