Area of Region

Not what you're looking for?

Find the area of the region bounded by the following graphs: y=x^2 ; y=8-x^2 ; and y=x^2+6.

I first figured out the area of (8-x^2) minus (x^2) using integral from -2 to 2 and found 64/3 . Then I figured out the area of (8-x^2) minus (x^2+6) using integral -1 to 1 and found 4. I then just subtracted these two regions from one another and got 52/3. Does this sound right?

Solution Summary

The area of a region is found through integrals.

• "Your solution, looks excellent. I recognize things from previous chapters. I have seen the standard deviation formula you used to get 5.154. I do understand the Central Limit Theorem needs the sample size (n) to be greater than 30, we have 100. I do understand the sample mean(s) of the population will follow a normal distribution, and that CLT states the sample mean of population is the population (mean), we have 143.74. But when and WHY do we use the standard deviation formula where you got 5.154. WHEN & Why use standard deviation of the sample mean. I don't understand, why don't we simply use the "100" I understand that standard deviation is the square root of variance. I do understand that the variance is the square of the differences of each sample data value minus the mean. But somehow, why not use 100, why use standard deviation of sample mean? Please help explain."
