Find the area of the region bounded by the following curves: y=x2-5x and y=3-x2 Answer: So, using simultaneous equations I found the points of intersection (x = -0.5 and x = 3). The book agrees with me on that. I then performed the following: 3-x2-(x2-5x) = -2x2+5x+3 I then integrated that: ((-2/3)*x3)+((5/2)*x2)+3x I then subtracted the result when I substitute -0.5 from the result I get when I substitute 3. The book claims the answer is 2.655 but, no matter how hard I try I keep getting (271/24) Can anyone help me here please? Thanks!
