The area (in sq. units) of the region


The area (in sq. units) of the region $\left\{(x, y) \in R^{2} \mid 4 x^{2} \leq y \leq 8 x+12\right\}$ is:

  1. (1) $\frac{125}{3}$

  2. (2) $\frac{128}{3}$

  3. (3) $\frac{124}{3}$

  4. (4) $\frac{127}{3}$

Correct Option: , 2


Given curves are

$4 x^{2}=y$

$y=8 x+12$

From eqns. (i) and (ii),

$4 x^{2}=8 x+12$

$\Rightarrow x^{2}-x-3=0$

$\Rightarrow x^{2}-2 x-3=0$

$\Rightarrow x^{2}-3 x+x-3=0$


$\Rightarrow x=-1,3$

Required area bounded by curves is given by

$A=\int_{-1}^{3}\left(8 x+12-4 x^{2}\right) d x$

$A=\frac{8 x^{2}}{2}+12 x-\left.\frac{4 x^{3}}{3}\right|_{-1} ^{3}$
