I want to know how the area between two curves can be determined,do i just multiply the functions and then equate everything to 0,so i can get the limits,and the integrate the multiplied function within those limits
NO, you don't "multiply the functions" OR "equate everything to 0"! I wonder where you would have gotten the idea that you should multiply the two functions. The limits of integration are the values of x where the area "ends"- where the two curves intersect. To find where the curves y= f(x) and y= g(x) intersect, solve y= f(x)= g(x).mathelord said:I want to know how the area between two curves can be determined,do i just multiply the functions and then equate everything to 0,so i can get the limits,and the integrate the multiplied function within those limits
