Can anyone help with the following problem please...Thank u so much
Let f(x) =9x. For the area above the xaxis and between the lines x= 9 and x=18
a. draw and label a sketch with
the area shaded
b. find the area of the region in
the xyplane under the graph
of f(x)

For this kind of problem, it is always desirable to make a sketch within the limits of the domain, from x=9 to 18.

Using the formula for the area of a triangle as:
Area = (1/2)base*height
You can find the areas of the two triangles between the function and the xaxis.

MathMate has gone to some length to answer it again, even creating a picture for you.
make a note of your post by jotting down the time of the first posting, even though it moves off the page, it is then rather easy to find 
Thank you for your help
