The next step is to solve these (separately):
x = x^2-2
and
-x = x^2-2
then you have to discard any solutions with x<0 for the first one and discard the solutions with -x<0 for the 2nd. Then see how you go
Absolute values throw me off. Can anyone break it down for me please?
Find the area of the region between the curves y = |x| and y = x^2 - 2
I start off finding the points of intersection which would be:
|x| = x^2 - 2
right? What now though? Thanks a bunch!
Hello, kep84!
Did you make a sketch?Find the area of the region between the curves andCode:(-2,2) | (2,2) * | * ::* | *:: :::* | *::: *::::* | *::::* ::::::* | *:::::: *:::::::* | *:::::::* -----*:-:-:-:-*-:-:-:-:*----- *::::::|::::::* *:::|:::* * |
Can you finish it now?
