 P: 656 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A cruve has the equation $$y = x{3} - 8x^{2} + 20x$$. The curve has stationary points A and B. There is a line through B parallel to y axis and meets the x axis at the point N. The region R is bounded by the curve , the x-axis and the line from A to N. Find the exact area under the curve 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Well I found the x co-ords of A and B, which is $$\frac{10}{3}$$ or 2. I intergrated the curve and got $$\frac{4x^{3}}{4} - \frac{8x^{3}}{3}+10x^{2}$$ no +C as we'll be having limits i presume But i dont know how to get the area of region R... as there is a stupid line in the way!!! Can somebody show/help me to do it. Thanks :)
