The area (in sq. units) of the region described by

\left \{ (x,y):y^{2}\leq 2x\, and\, y\geq 4x-1 \right \}\, \; is:

  • Option 1)


  • Option 2)


  • Option 3)


  • Option 4)

As learnt in concept

Area along x axis -

Let y_{1}= f_{1}(x)\, and \, y_{2}= f_{2}(x) be two curve then area bounded between the curves and the lines

x = a and x = b is

\left | \int_{a}^{b} \Delta y\, dx\right |= \left | \int_{a}^{b}\left ( y_{2}-y_{1} \right ) dx\right |


- wherein

Where \Delta y= f_{2}\left ( x \right )-f_{1}(x)


 Ponits of intersection of y^2=2x \: and \: y=4x-1

2x= (4x-1)^2\Rightarrow 2x=16x^2-8x+1

\Rightarrow 16x^2 - 10x +1=0 \Rightarrow 16x^2 - 8x -2x+1=0

x=\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{8}

\int_{\frac{1}{8}}^{\frac{1}{2}}\left (\sqrt{2x}-(4x-1) \right )dx

\frac{\sqrt{3}}{\frac{3}{2}}(x^\frac{3}{2})^\frac{1}{2}_\frac{1}{8} - 2(x^2)^\frac{1}{2}_\frac{1}{8} -(x)^\frac{1}{2}_\frac{1}{8}


Option 1)



Option 2)



Option 3)



Option 4)
