ind thearea bounded by y= 0.5x+6, y= 1/4 x and the yaxis.

find the area* sorry

Make a sketch to see that you have a triangle
Find the intersection of the two nonvertical lines
1/4 x =  1/2 x + 6
times 4
x = 2x + 24
3x = 24
x = 8
so we could consider the length along the yaxis as the base, and then the height would be 8
area = (1/2)(6)(8) = 24
