Find the area under the curve by integration Again

  • #1

Homework Statement



This is a piecewise function;
Part 1: y = 360(1.029x) For domain 0 < x < 54
Find the area from x=24 to 54 hours

And Part 2: y = 3900(0.98x) + 472 For domain 54 < x < 144
Find the area from x=54 to 120

In this case, since you need to find area and don't know integration. If you draw your lines and then draw the two x boundaries, it will form a geometric shape, which you should be able to find the area of.

So for y = 360(1.029x), sketch this graph first and then draw the lines x=24 and x=54. What shape does the enclosed region form? Can you find the area now?
