I'm not up to calculus yet, but I was playing with functions and I had this idea that I wanted to ask about. Is there an easy way to get the area under a curve given these restrictions: 1. The curve is described by second degree polynomial 2. The area we are interested in is the complete range between the zero's on the x-axis In other words, what is the area under the curve between the zero's of a(x-b)(x-c) It seems to be that this should be narrow enough to be calculable without doing series and integrals and whatnot (calculus, I don't know the exact approach yet), but I cant seem to find anything that fits. So, is there a nice solution to this?
