In this tutorial we shall find the area bounded by the curve , the x-axis and the line .

Since at x-axis, so for the points of intersection of the curve with the x-axis, put this implies that

The curve cuts x-axis only at . The graph of the given function as shown in the given diagram. The required area of the shaded region.

The required area is given by the integral of the form

Which shows that the area under the curve.
