integrate the two functions then take the difference. with the limits of integration being to two intersecting points.
i have 2 functions f(x) = x +1 and f(x) = (x-1)^2 I am supposed to figure out the area between the 2 functions without making any calculations....this is where im having trouble, i sketched the 2 graphs the x-1 function is a parabola facing up and the other function is a line that sits on top of it, but how am i supposed to know the area from that? unless i used graph paper and counted the boxes in between the functions? well if you come with an answer please let me know thanks.
