ind thearea bounded by y= -0.5x+6, y= 1/4 x and the y-axis.
find the area* sorry
Make a sketch to see that you have a triangle
Find the intersection of the two non-vertical lines
1/4 x = - 1/2 x + 6
x = -2x + 24
3x = 24
x = 8
so we could consider the length along the y-axis as the base, and then the height would be 8
area = (1/2)(6)(8) = 24
