    Well what is the area under

    y=4xe-x2 between x=0 and x=√(-ln(0.25)) ?

    Then find the area under the graph of y=|x| from x=0 to x=√(-ln(0.25)).

    No what do you think you should do?

    I actually figured it out shortly after posting this. I was making some really dumb mistakes! But thank you for replying so quickly. I'm sure I'll be back soon needing some more help :)
