# Area under Simple Curves

• The area region bounded by the y = f(x), the x - axis and the lines x = a, x = b is =\begin{vmatrix}\int_{a}^{b} y \ dx \end{vmatrix}=\begin{vmatrix}\int_{a}^{b} f(x) \ dx \end{vmatrix}
• The area region bounded by the curve y = f(x) the y-axis and the lines y = c, y = d is =\begin{vmatrix}\int_{c}^{d} x \ dy \end{vmatrix}=\begin{vmatrix}\int_{c}^{d} f^{-1}(y) \ dy \end{vmatrix}
• The area region bounded by y = f(x), y = g(x) the lines x = a, x = b is \begin{vmatrix}\int_{a}^{b} f(x)-g(x) \ dx \end{vmatrix}
• The area region bounded by y = f(x) and y = g(x) and the lines y = c, y = d is \begin{vmatrix}\int_{c}^{d} f^{-1}(y)-g^{-1}(y) \ dy \end{vmatrix}
• If y = f(x) and y = g(x) and these curves intersect at P(α1, β1), Q (α2, β2), then the area between curves is \begin{vmatrix}\int_{\alpha_{1}}^{\alpha_{2}} f(x)-g(x) \ dx \end{vmatrix} on x-axis \begin{vmatrix}\int_{\beta_{1}}^{\beta_{2}} f^{-1}(y)-g^{-1}(y) \ dy\end{vmatrix} on y-axis

1. The area of the region bounded by the curve y = f(x), x-axis and the lines x = a and x = b (b > a)  is given by the formula: Area = \int_{a}^{b} y \ dx=\int_{a}^{b} f(x)\ dx.

2. The area of the region bounded by the curve x = Φ(y), y-axis and the lines y = c, y = d is given by the formula: Area = \int_{c}^{d} x \ dy=\int_{c}^{d} \phi(y)\ dy.
