Use a graph to give a rough estimate of the area of the region that lies beneath the given curve. Then find the exact area.
y = sec^2 x, 0 ≤ x ≤ π/4

asked by TayB
  1. To get the area, we use integration. From the graph, we can draw vertical strips that run from 0 to π/4.
    ∫ y dx
    = ∫ sec^2 (x) dx
    = tan x | from 0 to π/4
    = tan (π/4) - tan (0)
    = 1 - 0
    = 1
