basically, let's say i have three linear equations, y1, y2, and y3.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

assume y1 = ax+b where a and b are constants

assume y2 = mx+k where m and k are constants

assume y3 = n where n is a constant

also, now assume that they all intersect at y1=y1=y3=n.

would the area between the curves, y1 and y2, from 0 to the intersection represent anything? I've attached a sample pic for reference.
