how can you find the bounderies given by the curve x=4sqrt(y) and y=4sqrt(x)? show your solution please. thanks to anyone who will notice this!
well, um, did you try actually drawing the graphs?
x=4√y is the right half of a parabola that opens upward
y=4√x is the upper half of a parabola that opens to the right.
You can think of it as the area in the 1st quadrant, bounded by
y=x^2/16 and x=y^2/16
You have a small lens-shaped region in QI, with vertices at (0,0) and (16,16)
and review your algebra I!
