Section 6-1: Areas Between Curves Find the area A between the curves y = 1 + x 2 y = 3 + x Sketch the area and find points of intersection We sketch the area to be calculated by sketching the two curves and finding their points of intersection M and N. To find M and N, we solve: 1 + x 2 = y = 3 + x x 2 -x - 2 = 0 (x - 2)(x + 1) = 0 M: x = -1 y = 2 N: x = 2 y = 5 Method of vertical strips We divide the area A into thin vertical strips of width dx, height (3 + x)

Unformatted text preview: - (1 + x 2 ) and integrate from x = -1 to x = 2. The area dA of a vertical strip is: dA = [(3 + x) - (1 + x 2 )]dx Method of horizontal strips We divide the area A into thin horizontal strips of height dy and consider two cases to calculate their width. Area A1: 1 < y < 2 The area dA of a horizontal strip is: Area A2: 2 < y < 5 The area dA of a horizontal strip is:...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
