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

    find the area* sorry

  • Math -

    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
    times 4
    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
