Hey, could someone please help me with the following question: Find the area of the bounded region with the given functions y=1/x, y=x, y=1/4x. My book gives the answer ln(2), but I don't know how. When I attempted to solve the problem I made the integral from 0 to 2, based off my graph and integrated the (x1/x0.25x)dx? How should I combine the given equations to find the area?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Quick question why does the integral have yo be broken up the area is all above the xaxis?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Never mind I see why the function that is on top changes from [0,2] , so the integral end points has to change to reflect that switch.
