**drwls**, Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 5:49amEvaluate the integral of 1/x^3 from x = 1 to x = 2. That is the enclosed area of the region. I get 3/8. See what you get.

Then pick the upper limit of integration, b, such that the integral of 1/x^3 from 1 to b is half the number you got for the full integral.
