Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I understand if I rewrite the equation as y=\(\sqrt{x4}\) then integrate with appropriate bounds it will work, but there is some sort of alternate interpretation I am not understanding.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2inky suggests that we move the graph to something simpler to play with; shift if left by "c" units given us y = sqrt(x+c) r = x = sqrt(y)  c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the only issue that may present itself with that setup tho is that you get a negative summation
