Find the area enclosed by the 3 lines:
y = 1/x, y = x, and y = x/4 where x > 0
The answer is supposed to be LN 2
I know that one of the first steps is to solve the equations simultaneously, but I'm not sure how to so what when you're working with 3 equations. Anyway, this is how I did it.
1/x = x
1/x -x = x/4
1/x - x - x/4 = 0
x = +/- 2/sqrt(5)
So I integratd between +/- 2/sqrt(5) and I did not get LN 2.
Can someone help me with this, please?
