The functions f and g are given by f(x)=√x and g(x)=6-x. Let R be the region bounded by the x-axis and the graphs of f and g, as shown in the figure in the link below. Please show your work.

    The functions f and g are given by f(x)=√x and g(x)=6-x. Let R be the region bounded by the x-axis and the graphs of f and g, as shown in the figure in the link below. Please show your work. http://goo.gl/jXIZD 1. Find the area of R. 2. The region R is the base of a solid. For each y, where 0<=y<=2, the cross section of the solid taken perpendicular to the y-axis is a rectangle whose base lies in R and whose height is 2y. Write, but do not evaluate, an integral expression that gives the volume of the solid. 3. There is a point P on the graph of f at which the line tangent to the graph of f is perpendicular to the graph of g. Find the coordinates of point P.

    I calculated 22/3 for 1. Is that right? What do I do for 2 and 3?

    hmm for area of region you can do \[ \int_0^4 f(x) dx + \int_4^6 g(x) dx\]

    Right. I believe I've already gotten the answer for the area. Which is exactly what you gave. Which ends up being 16/3 + 2 = 22/3. I'm not sure what to do for 2 and 3.

    |dw:1362066203257:dw| Is that what it's supposed to look like? It says the height is 2y and the base is R (which I don't understand).

    So are you saying that it ends up being the integral from [0,4] of 2f(x)^2 + the integral from [4,6] of 2 g(x)^2 dx?

    Part 3 is looking for a point on f where it's perpendicular to g(x). I assume that the point must be somewhere between x=0-1. How do I find it?

    the part 3 is not difficult .. just find the slope using f'(x) and equate it with m1*m2 = -1 ... my being slope of g(x)

    f'(x) = 1/2√x so 1/2√x * -1 = -1?

    In order for that equation to work, I would need to find a way for 1/2√x = 1 so then 1 * -1 =-1 right? Well, what if 1/2√x doesn't reach one at any given moment?
