Okay, you have 2 equations (and no points on the graph given) -- You have f(x) = 2x-3x^3 and f(x) = c. You are to find the area under the curve between those 2 functions and are to make it equal with the area between the y axis and the 2 curves.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, I started this problem initially by creating a graph, and putting all my points on it. I integrated both the areas with respect to x.. and I used (for the area bounded by the y axis and the curves -- which I marked A1) the bounds 0 to 2x-3x^3.

For the second one, I don't know what bounds to use.. and I think this is where I messed up initially... I used my original bounds which are now clearly wrong...

I'm so stumped, and it's most likely something silly....

Edit: in my sleepy stuper, I forgot to include (although it may be obvious) that you are to be solving for C :)
