    Sketch Area

    Here is the question: Sketch the region* enclosed by the given curves. Decide whether to integrate with respect to x or y. Draw a typical approximating rectangle and label its height and width.

    y = sqrt(x)

    y = (1/3)x

    x = 25

    *Now here is where I am confused. It says "region" but not "regions". When I graphed this thing I saw two regions that I could calculate the area of. I guess that it should be one that encompasses all of the givens, however I am not 100% sure.


    Thanks!

    Hello,

    to me it looks like one region which is a little bit "distorted".

    I've attached a screenshot.

    b = 25.33 is the bigger part of the area

    c = 29.83 is the complete area
