**Reiny**, Monday, May 30, 2011 at 12:46pmCute question.

After you made your sketch, you will find that the area above the x-axis is 14, while the area that falls below the x-axis is 18, so we have to cut off 2 units from the rectangle formed by (0,0), (4,0), (4,-2) and (0,-2).

That will result in a right-angled triangle with base 4 and height h such that

(1/2)(4)h = 2

h = 1

so the line has to go through the point (4,-1)

resulting in a slope of -1/4
