Find the area of the region bounded by the y-axis, the line y=6, and the line y = 1/2x.

This area will form a right riangle

We can find one leg as follows

6 = (1/2)x multiply both sides by 2

12 = x

The other leg = 6

And the area of a right triangle = product of the legs / 2 =

[ 12 * 6 ] / 2 =

72 / 2 =

36 units^2

Do you have to sign up in Desmos to share a graph link? I tried to share one, but even when I plotted points on the graph, the URL was still https://www.desmos.com/calculator. (The link brought me to a empty graph)

PartialMathematician,

Yes, I believe you do have to sign up to share graphs with others. It is free.
