For question a), I know from the book that the area can be found by taking the area of the trapezoid yielding 4. But if 0 and 2 are the domain of the integral wouldn't it just be the area of the triangle? I am sorry for my articulation, English is not my native language. http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/6359 ... reting.png Regards, MP

I also have one more quick question if you are in will to engage towards. What do I do when the question requests that I evaluate an integral by interpreting it in terms of area? Such as: let S= integral symbol (tell me how to add the integral symbol) let IxI be absolute value of x. S(1x)dx and S(IxI)dx

The integral of a function from a limit of to is equal to the area enclosed by the curve between the xaxis under those points. For the image question Similarly, you can find other areas.
