Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hi amistre64, say if these are the curves y=x^2+5x & y=3x^2 between x=2 & x=0...then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x) = x^2 +5x and g(x) = 3 x^2 (S) f(x) dx = (1/3)x^3 + (5/2)(x^2) + x; F(0)  F(2) = area under f(x). (S) g(x) dx = 3x  (1/3)x^3; G(0)  G(2) = area under g(x) Subtract the area to determine area between the curves :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can forgo the F(0) and G(0), they are 0 to begin with :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:) thnx..can u temme how to find which is the upper curve & which one is the lower one? any hints/tricks?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you know the graphs, its easier; but to tell the truth I dont think it matters much. Let me see.... if were going with a box. And one box is 50 and the other is 20, we would want to find the difference between them. 5020 = 30; and 2050=30. Intuition says that if the area is negative, it is just a simple change of sign to make it right :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dunno about the "total" part. But a derivative is when you use the symbol (dy/dx) or something like it. The derivative (dy/dx) cannot be a number, or seperated. Differentiation on the other hand, is using the (dy/dx) as if it WAS a fraction and seperating it. For examples: dy/dx = x^2 is a derivative. dy = x^2 dx is a deriviation. Why there is a difference, i dont think ill ever know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are alot of "d" words to keep track of in Calculus, youd think theyd have come up with better names... dy = x^2 dx is an example of differentation. And: It is the differentation that you work the integral on. (S) dy = (S) x^2 dx y = (1/3) x^3
