We just finished up area between two curves and volume of a solid. I've been having some difficulties with it. This was a homework problem two nights ago, and I thought I understood it (even after doing it in class), but I don't.
The question tells you to find the area between:
and
So I solve for x.
Now...in class, the interval of the area was shown as -6 to 2 on the y axis. How is that determined? I can get -6 and 2 for values of intersection of x, but not y. What am I missing here?
The answer was eventually shown as (before computation):
I forgot how to put the lower part of the integral in there, sorry.
