  1. Sep 23, 2010 #1
    1. Find the area between the curves y=4xe^-x^2, y=abs(x)

    2. intersection points are 0 and sqrt(-ln(1/4))

    3. help!

    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 :)
