**Steve**, Friday, August 23, 2013 at 4:36amDraw the figure. The area is 32.

The area above the x-axis is 14, and below is 18.

So, we want a line sloping down through the origin.

Further inspection shows that the area of the foot is 10, so we want a chunk of area 6 in the middle section.

That will be formed by a trapezoid of height 4 with bases 2 and b, such that

(2+b)/2 * 4 = 6

2+b = 3

b = 1

So, we want the line through (0,0) and (4,-1). That will have slope -1/4.
