given two function f and g in the closed interval a to b, the area would be ∫(f(x) - g(x))dx from a to b if f(x)≥g(x) for all x in [a,b]. My question is.. if I were given two function f and g in a given interval [a,b], what is the best way to dertermine if f(x)≥g(x) or vise versa? Would it be best to graph the two functions then visually evaluate it? Im looking for better methods... any suggestions??
