# Solve the following : Find the area of the region bounded by the curve x2 = 25y, y = 1, y = 4 and the Y-axis. - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Solve the following :

Find the area of the region bounded by the curve x2 = 25y, y = 1, y = 4 and the Y-axis.

#### Solution

Given equation of the curve is x2 = 25y
∴ 5sqrt(y)      ...[∵ In first quadrant, x > 0]
Required area = area of the region PRSVP
= 2(area of the region QRSTQ)

= 2int_1^4x*dy

= 2int_1^4 5sqrt(y)*dy

= 10 int_1^4 y^(1/2)*dy

= 10[y^(3/2)/(3/2)]_1^4

= (20)/(3)[(4)(3/2) - (1)^(3/2)]

= (20)/(3)(8 - 1)

= (20)/(3)(7)

= (140)/(3)"sq. units".

Is there an error in this question or solution?
