Sketch a graph of the region bounded by the functions , , and the -axis.

  1. How could you estimate the area in this region?

  2. Using your method, estimate the area of the region.

Graph the functions. Shade the region. Find all relevant intersections: Where does intersect with ? Where does each function cross the -axis? How many integrals will you need?

The functions intersect at (). The area should be approximated with rectangles or trapezoids for and added to the area of the triangle for .

Estimates will vary. area
