Find the exact positive value of c if the area between the graph of y=x^2c^2 and the x axis is 36. Does that mean x=36? but then how do i solve for c?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c is a constant here that you are trying to determine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in other words; what is the integral of y = x^2 + C such that it equals 36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0youd need to find the solution for: 108 = x (x+sqrt(3C)) (xsqrt(3C))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or simply put..... since C = c^2 108 = x (x  csqrt(3))(x + csqrt(c))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0make sure you integrate half of that area then multiply it by 2 to check yourself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why would you have to take half

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do we want the interval and the value of "c" in the equation to be the same?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because the graph of y = x^2 C is centered on the y axis; and if you take the area of that, you get "zero' regardless of where you put it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both sides cancel each other out.... just a hazard of the trade really
