# Area Between Productivity Curves

Not what you're looking for?

After t hours on the job, one factory worker is producing Q'1(t) = 60 - 2(t - 1)^2 units per hour, while a second worker is producing Q'2(t) = 50 - 5t units per hour.

a) If both arrive on the job at 8:00 AM how many more units will the first worker have produced by noon than the second worker?

b) Interpret the answer in part (a) as the area between two curves.

Please see the attachment.

Q'1(t) = 60 - 2(t - 1)^2. So, Q(t) = [60 - 2(t - 1)^2].dt = 60t - (2/3)(t - 1)^3

Number of units produced over t = 0 to t = 4 hrs

60t - ...
