Hey can anybody help me by giving a step to step guide on how to work out an area enclosed by a curve please?. Find the area enclosed by the curve: Y=4x^2 (x^2-2x+1). The axis and the ordinates x=1 and x=2. thanks

The axis and the ordinates x=1 and x=2. I assume the area between the curve and the x-axis ... what do you know about definite integrals ?
Hi, thanks for the reply. I know that definite integrals have limits, and always end up with a numerical answer with no need for +c at the end.
I have worked out that the integrated equation would look like 4x^5-8x^4+4x^3 However, apparently the -8x^3 turns to -2x^4 Can anybody explain why?. Thanks.
the antiderivative of is I leave you to finish the arithmetic
