The area of a parabolic arch is equal to the product of the base and the height.
I need to prove this formula for the general parabola , where is any real number less than zero
and a definite integral to represent the requested area
thank you

Hello, doctorgk!
They could have used a nicer general form . . .The area of a parabolic arch is equal to the product of the base and the height.
Prove this formula for the general parabolaFor the x-intercepts: .Code:| h* * | * * | * * | * | - -*- - - + - - -*- - b | b
We have: .
. .
Since , we have: .
