I need to find the area between y=sqrt(x+3) and y = (x+3)/2
I integrated in terms of y from 0 to 2 of (y^2 -3) - (2y-3). The answer i got was -4/3, and the actual answer is 4/3. Why is it coming out this way?
Thanks for helping!
Okay thank you. I understand the concept, and I figured that was the case but I am having a hard time visualizing that 1/2(x+3) is larger. I have the functions graphed out on my paper, when I rotate the graph 90 degree counterclockwise I can see how 1/2(x+3) is larger...is this how to always look at this type of problem when integrating with respect to y?
