Homework Help: geometry

Posted by borat on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 7:18pm.

Consider the region in Quadrant 1 totally bounded by the 4 lines: x = 3, x = 9, y = 0, and y = mx (where m is positive). Determine the value of c such that the vertical line x = c bisects the area of that totally bounded region.
Needless to say, your first task should be to draw a representative diagram for the problem that has been described. Also, after determining the value of c, be sure to comment on the (probably) surprising non-contributing factor in this problem.
Bonus: What if the problem were modified such that a horizontal line, y = k was to be the area bisector of the totally bounded region. Determine what the value of k would be in that case.
