note that y decreases by 1 when x increases by 2. So, start with y = -1/2 x But, -1/2 (2) = -1, and y(2) = 1. So, y = -1/2 x + 2

x^2+2r√y = xy If y is constant, it's just like any other dumber, so 2x dx/dr + 2√y = y dx/dr dx/dr (2x-y) = -2√y dx/dr = 2√y / (y-2x)

y = 5x√(121-x^2) This is an odd function, so algebraically, the area is zero -- equal areas above and below the x-axis. By symmetry, the geometric area is a = 2∫[0,11] 5x√(121-x^2) dx If you let u = 121-x^2, du = -2x dx, so a = 2∫[121,0] -5/2 √u ...
