The equation y=f(x) is graphed, and the x and y intercepts of the graph are connected to form a polygon. What is the area of that polygon?
The area of the polygon is 13/3.
I can post my solution, though I do not know if is correct.... I got area = 32/3 ??
A good start would be to graph the function and draw the polygon:
The polygon is clearly a triangle, the area of which is given by (1/2)base*height. The base length is fairly obvious. To get the height, simply find f(0).
