I want to find the area between two curves (see graph attached). But I want to find the area in function of "r", can anybody help?. The first curve is a line (x+y=1), and the second has the equation xy=r

is just a constant, isn't it?

Then simply solve both equations for :

The graphs intersect at

So you need to evaluate:

Hahahah... I might be wrong

On second thought it might be better to solve for*r*instead...

x = 0.65, y = .2 seems like a good spot.

but varies from 0 to 0.25, that means that r can be any number between [0,0.25]
