## Homework Statement

Find the value of k so that the region enclosed by f(x)=sqrt(x+2), the x-axis, and the line x=2 is divided by x = k into two regions of equal area.

## Homework Equations

definate integral properities, fundamental theorem of calculus

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have no problem finding the integral for this area, I'm just confused over the last part of the question and the use of the line x = k. How am I supposed to bring this into the answer to find the value of k that makes the area two equal regions? I had an idea to sub k in for x, but this doesn't appear to be anywhere near the right method. Any help with this question would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
