the
x
axis on the interval [0

1.
Area = 27 sq.units
correct
2.
Area = 25 sq.units
3.
Area = 24 sq.units
4.
Area = 26 sq.units
5.
Area = 23 sq.units
Explanation:
The graph of
f
is a parabola opening down
wards and crossing the
x
axis at
x
= 0 and
x
= 3.
Thus the required area is similar to
the shaded region in the figure below.

f
In terms of definite integrals, therefore, the
required area is given by

and
y
=
