Misc 11 Using the method of integration find the area bounded by the curve 𝑥+ 𝑦=1 [Hint: The required region is bounded by lines 𝑥+𝑦= 1, 𝑥 –𝑦=1, –𝑥+𝑦 =1 and −𝑥 −𝑦=1 ] We know that │𝑥│= 𝑥, 𝑥≥0&−𝑥, 𝑥<0 & │𝑦│= 𝑦, 𝑦≥0&−𝑦, 𝑦<0 So, we can write │𝑥│+│𝑦│=1 as 𝑥+𝑦=1 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑥>0 , 𝑦>0−𝑥+𝑦=1 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑥<0 𝑦>0 𝑥−𝑦 =1 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑥>0 , 𝑦<0−𝑥−𝑦=1 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑥<0 𝑦<0 For 𝒙+𝒚=𝟏 For −𝒙+𝒚=𝟏 Hence the figure is Since the Curve symmetrical about 𝑥 & 𝑦−𝑎𝑥𝑖𝑠 Required Area = 4 × Area AOB Area AOB Area ABO = 01𝑦 𝑑𝑥 where 𝑥+𝑦=1 𝑦=1−𝑥 Therefore, Area ABO = 01 1−𝑥 𝑑𝑥 = 𝑥− 𝑥2201 =1− 122− 0− 0222 =1− 12 = 12 Hence, Required Area = 4 × Area AOB = 4 × 12 = 2 square units
