83. What is the area of the region in the first quadrant enclosed by the graphs of y = cosx, y = x,and the y-axis?
First sketch the required area, see attachment. The required area is theOriginally Posted by frozenflames
shaded region in the figure.
Just counting squares indicates that the area is close to 0.4, but we
will find this area by integration. This is:
where is the solution of in .
Now using the bisection method gives that
So we seek:
