    Find a horizontal line that divides an area between y=x^2 and y=9 into two equal parts.

    I need help in approaching this problem. I know how to calculate the area. I divided the area by two and through trial and error I found the horizontal line to be close to y=5.6. I don't know how to get an exact answer.
