The Area Between Two Curves. Lesson 6.1. What If … ?. We want to find the area between f(x) and g(x) ? Any ideas?. When f(x) < 0. Consider taking the definite integral for the function shown below. The integral gives a negative area (!?) We need to think of this in a different way. a. b.
Recall our look at odd functions on the interval [-a, a]
We take the absolute value for the interval which would give us a negative area.Solution
