Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, 5/9 is way too big. Do you only need xbar and not ybar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the curve on the top is technically y=1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you need to switch x and y to find xbar and ybar. i.e. for xbar it is integral of y dA, and for ybar it is integral of x dA.
