Find the area of the region bounded by y=1/x^2,y-4, and x=5. Use dy to integrate and/or differntiate.

In this question find the area but use dy to set up the integral and bounds.

William W.

y=1/x^2 needs to be bounded on the left as well as right, the bottom as well as the top. y = 4 (you have listed "y-4") is the top. Is the bottom the x-axis? x = 5 is the right, is the left the y-axis?

This makes a closed shape. The left bound is simply where 1/x^2 and y=4 intersect at a point.
