what does your graph look like?
i'm not sure
wait nevermind it's not that
|dw:1359922919356:dw| thats what i was thinking it was like
then the only pertinent equations are: x^2-x^4 and y=-sqrt(x)
they meet at x=0, and what is the other x value?
I don't know
-sqrt(x) = x^2 - x^4 0 = x^2 -sqrt(x) -x^4 that does seem a bit convoluted :/
hmmm, that is one representation i can see of it :)
so if thats the case, would changing it to parametric form help out?
I'd: Write y as function of x: y=xsqrt(1-x²) Integrate using u=1-x² Multiply by 4, because of the symmetry...
sounds crazy enough to work :)
what do I multiply by 4?
If you integrate as I did, you only get the area between the positive x-axis and the graph (upper right part of the whole thing) There a 4 such areas, so multiply by 4.
oh okay thanks
I've got to 8/3, hope this helps ;)
