Is that ? If so, I wouldn't integrate. You can solve the problem without integrating. Think about what the shape of that curve is.
Find the area under the graph to the x axis from -2 to 2 for
f(x) = (4 - x^2)^(1/2)
Okay, so I understand how to do the problem overall but I don't know how to take the antiderivative of that particular function. Is there an easy way to do the chain rule in reverse or what...
Oh, sorry. I had the question mark there because I didn't know where you were going with it, not whether or not it's a semicircle. Um...I don't really know. It's doesn't quite touch the x-axis according to my graphing calculator, and as a result it is sort of messing with all of the estimations I've attempted, and I don't know how to integrate a function like that.
