sketch the region enclosed by the given curves and find its area:
$$y=\frac 1x,\; y=x,\; y=\frac x4,\; x>0.$$
I have no problem sketching the area between the curves but there are three, and only one constant value, so I don't know what to put as my second a/b value. I tried using 1/x as a b value but that just gave me an equation answer and the answer isn't an equation.
edit: i forgot about the intersections as constant values. but now I see how to split them up.
This is chapter 6.1 calculus James Stewart btw (area between curves)
