I have a fun project I'm trying to do and it's been a good number of years since I did any math higher than algebra. As such, I don't know how to approach this and would like some pointers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to understand how I can subtract one function from another ONLY where the two functions overlap. The first part is easy enough (algebra), but the caveat is challenging to my grey matter. Can anyone advise me on how to approach this?

Thank you,
