# Finding Area by the Fundamental Theorem In Exercises 9-16, find the area of the region. See Example 2. y = 1 x 2 To determine

To calculate: The area of the region y=1x2 in the provided figure. Explanation

Given Information:

The function is y=1x2 and the provided figure is:

Formula used:

The fundamental theorem of calculus states that,

If f is integrable on interval [a,b] then abf(x)dx=F(b)F(a).

The integration formula is xndx=xn+1n+1+C.

Calculation:

Consider the figure.

To find the area of the region, fundamental theorem of calculus can be used.

Integrate the function from x=1 to x=2 as shown below,

12(1x2)dx

This can be written as,

12(1x2)dx=12(x2
