Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1smartcow, i thought the ordinates were from 1/2 where did you get the 1/2 from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4well when i graphed it, the parabola from 1/2 to 1/2 is below the xaxis ?

dumbcow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4is it bounded by the xaxis above or below ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so is the shaded the area? dw:1328177068433:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4hmm i guess that makes more sense...why do they say it is bounded by the xaxis then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but when i find the area i get 0 or maybe i have done some stupid error lemme check

dumbcow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4no i get 0 as well, if the limits are 1/2 to 1

dumbcow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4thats because the area under the xaxis is negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the answer in my solution book says the answer is 4/3 square units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4hmm well the area from 1/2 to 1 is 2/3 are you sure its not x=1 an x=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1perhaps the answer in the solution book is wrong then or the question is wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4dw:1328177655800:dw \[\int\limits_{1}^{1/2}(4x^{2} 1)dx + \int\limits_{1/2}^{1}(4x^{2} 1)dx = 2/3 + 2/3 = 4/3\] thats my best guess :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But the only solution for \( 4x^21\) is \(\pm\frac 12 \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The parabola intersects the x axis at \(\pm \frac 12 \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See here, the area is not well defined :http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=+y+%3D+4x%5E2+1%3Bx%3D1%2F2%3Bx%3D1%3Bx%3D0%3By%3D0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I think dumcow's interpretation is not correct either.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4haha sorry i should have clarified , my drawing assumes the question is wrong at to get area of 4/3 the bounds must be x=1 and x=1 and xaxis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no need to apologise! you have a case indeed hehehe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But the bound x=1 and x=1 makes no sense right?
