1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the equation of the curve which passes through the point (-1,0) and whose gradient at any point (x,y) is 3x2-6x+4. Find the area enclosed by the curve, the axis of x and the ordinates x=1 and x=2. . The attempt at a solution I integrated and got the equation of the curve to be x3 -3x2 +4x +8 Now to find the area I'm not sure what to do, I tried to sketch a graph but I couldn't. I tried integrating from x=1 to x=2 and I got 2, which isn't the answer in the book :S. Help greatly appreciated.
