    Do you know what the graph looks like?

    Well it might be a good idea to sketch a graph

    would it possible to solve the problem without a graph?

    Well yes but it be a bit harder since we don't know which graph is higher

    oh i see... how do you draw a graph

    wait, are you finding total area or net area?

    it says find the area between the curves?

    If I'm not mistaken then the graphs should look like this when graphed |dw:1366855841011:dw|

    sin and cos graph?

    Uhm no, the ends of the graph go off into infinity after they have intersected

    Now, do you notice anything about the two graphs?

    -they get smaller and smaller? -they intersects

  17. Luigi0210

    Well yes but also they are reflections of one another

    Yes,

    So that means that whatever area on graph has the other has the opposite area. Such as -x and x.

    Yes,

  21. Luigi0210

    So that means the area would be zero

    the answer is zero?

    i thought i need more calculations

  24. Luigi0210
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    Well you could if you want but the answer would still be zero. These two graphs are going to cancel each others area out

    i entered zero into the answer but it tells me that it was wrong

    Well let's solve it right now, do you know how to set it up as an integral?

    but anyways we would set up the problem like this: \[\int\limits_{0}^{9} (x^3-14x^2+45x)-(-x^3+14x^2-45x) dx\]

    I'm betting that they want you to set up two different integrals...based on the two enclosed regions.
