1-4.

Examine the graph the function at right.

Find the area of the shaded region using geometry.

Notice the familiar geometric shape.

We will use the notation

to represent "The area between the function and the-axis" over the interval fromto.

Notice that the line dips below the

-axis when. We will consider the area*below*the-axis as negative. Find.Find the area of the negative region and combine

it with the positive area found in part (a).Find

if. Show how you obtained your solution clearly and completely.
