Read the problem statement. to calculate the area under f(x) from x=0 to x=L, L ? 2.0, bound f(x) by a 1 x L rectangle then randomly... |

It's not an upside-down parabola, it's a bell curve. But yes, you need to find an area under the portion bounded by two vertical lines, as you would in calculus. |

OK, here's a run-down of the problem. Draw the curve y = exp(-x^2). exp(z) represents the function e^z, where e is the base of the natural logarithm. We would like to know the area bounded above by ... |
