Unformatted text preview: yvalues equal to each other and solve for x : x = 1 x 2 = ⇒ x 3 = 1 = ⇒ x = 1 . The lower range of integration is x = 1. Thus the area bounded by the lines y = x , x = 2 and the curve y = 1 /x 2 , is given by Z 2 1 (upper curvelower curve) dx = Z 2 1 ± x1 x 2 ² dx = x 2 2x11 !³ ³ ³ ³ ³ 2 1 = x 2 2 + 1 x !³ ³ ³ ³ ³ 2 1 = 2 2 2 + 1 2 !1 2 2 + 1 1 ! = 2 + 1 21 21 = 1 ....
