# Finding Area with Double Integral In Exercises 45–48, use a double integral to calculate the area denoted by ∫ R ∫ d A where R is the region bounded by the given equations. See Example 6. x − y = 1 ,   5 x − y = 1

To determine

To calculate: The area denoted by the expression RdA where R is the region bounded by the equations xy=1 and 5xy=1 using double integral.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression and the equations are RdA, xy=1 and 5xy=1 respectively.

Formula used:

To determine the area in the plane by double integrals mostly two kind of strips are used.

1. Vertical strip: In case of vertical strip shown below the region bounded is given by,

axbg1(x)yg2(x)

And the area of the region is given by,

abg1(x)g2(x)dydx

2. Horizontal strip: In case of horizontal strip shown below the region bounded is given by,

cydh1(y)yh2(y)

And the area of the region is given by,

cdh1(y)h2(y)dxdy

Calculation:

Consider the expression RdA.

First sketch the graph of region R which is bounded by the equations xy=1 and 5xy=1.

The graph of the equation xy=1 would be a straight line.

For equation 5xy=1, put different values of x in the equation to obtain different values of y in order to plot graph of the equation.

For x=0,

y=5x1=01=1

For x=1,

y=5x1=51=1.236

For x=2,

y=5x1=101=2.162

For x=3,

y=5x1=151=2.872

Now construct a table showing different values of x and y as,

 x y=5x−1 0 −1 1 1
