hi! Thanks for the advice, I managed to find the intersection points, but I seem to have run into a problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I set up the integral as follows:

(4-x^2) (for 1 to 2) + (4 - 1/x) (for 1/4 to 1)

this worked out to

((8-8/3) - (4 - 1/3)) + (4 - (1 - ln1/4))

(16/3 - 11/3) + (3 + ln1/4)

5/3 + 3 + ln 1/4

= 14/3 + ln1/4

but the answer at the back says that the correct response is

14/3 - ln4... What did I do wrong?

Thanks so much,

heather
