## anonymous 4 years ago to find the area under a curve you take the integral of the equation right?

1. anonymous

Yeah, from the lower limit to the higher limit of integration.

2. anonymous

Area under the curve f (x):$A = \int\limits_{a}^{b} f (x)dx$

3. anonymous

so y=1/x is the equation which equals ln(x)

4. anonymous

Yes, the integral of y = 1/x is$\ln \left| x \right|$

okay thank you
