Introduction

Area A formed in the function y=x2 from y=0 to y=1 and the y-axis can be found by integrating the function with respect to y.

Area A:

 y=x2

Area B formed in the function y=x2 from x=0 to x=1 and the x-axis can be found by integrating the function with respect to x.

Therefore, the ratio of the areas A and B for the function y=x2 is:

A : B = image50.pngimage50.png : image86.pngimage86.png

           = 2 : 1

Now try the same with the function y=xn when nimage105.pngimage105.pngZ+ and between x=0 and x=1.

Area A formed in the function from y=0 and y=1n and the y-axis can be found by integrating the function in respect for y.

          = 47 : 1

In y=x47, the value of n is 47, and therefore the conjecture n : 1 works when n=47.

When n=113,

Area A:

y=x113

 x=image36.pngimage36.png

image37.pngimage37.png dy

=[image38.pngimage38.pngimage05.pngimage05.pngimage39.pngimage39.png]image14.pngimage14.png

Area B:

y=x113

=image45.pngimage45.png

=image46.pngimage46.png

=image47.pngimage47.png

=image48.pngimage48.png units2

Therefore, the ratio of the areas A and B in the function y=x113 is:

A : B = image43.pngimage43.png : image48.pngimage48.png

          = 113 : 1

In y=x113, the value of n is 113, and therefore the conjecture n : 1 works when n=113.

image49.pngimage49.png It can be assumed that the conjecture n : 1 works in any positive real numbers.

  1. To determine whether the conjecture only holds for areas between x=0 and x=1, now try the same thing but changing the values of x.

When x is from 0 to 2,

Area A:

y=xn

x=image51.pngimage51.png

image52.pngimage52.png dy

=[image53.pngimage53.pngimage05.pngimage05.pngimage54.pngimage54.png]image55.pngimage55.png

=image61.pngimage61.png

=image62.pngimage62.png

=image63.pngimage63.png

=image64.pngimage64.png units2

Therefore, the ratio of the areas A and B when x is between 0 and 2 is:

A : B = image58.pngimage58.png : image64.pngimage64.png

          = n : 1 ………. Conjecture works

When x is from 1 to 2,

Area A:

y=xn

A : B = image122.pngimage122.png   : image127.pngimage127.png

          = n : 1 ………. Conjecture works

image128.pngimage128.pngs.

  1. When y=xn, x is between a and b and y is between an and bn,

Area A:

y=xn

x=image51.pngimage51.png

image129.pngimage129.png dy

=image130.pngimage130.png

Area B:

y=xn

image135.pngimage135.png dx

=image136.pngimage136.png

=(image134.pngimage134.png units2

Therefore, the ratio of the areas A and B is,

A : B = n(image134.pngimage134.png : (image134.pngimage134.png

          = n : 1 ………. Conjecture works

image49.pngimage49.pngThe conjecture n : 1 is true for the general case y=xn from x=a to x=b where a<b and the area A is defined as y=xn, y=an, y=bn and the y-axis and the area B is defined as y=xn, x=a, x=b and the x-axis.

  1. (a) We need to find the volume B in order to find out the volume A so we start off with volume B.

Volume B:

y=xn

=image138.pngimage138.png

=image139.pngimage139.png

And then volume A.

Volume A:

=image144.pngimage144.png

=image145.pngimage145.png

=image146.pngimage146.png

=image147.pngimage147.png units3

Therefore, the ratio of the volumes A and B is:

A : B = image147.pngimage147.png : image140.pngimage140.png

          =2n : 1

image148.png

(b)Volume A:

y=xn

x=image51.pngimage51.png

Volume B:

=image160.pngimage160.png

Therefore, the ratio of the volumes A and B is:

A : B = image154.pngimage154.png : image162.pngimage162.png

          = n : 2

    Actually, - 0,618 is the limit of consecutive ratios. This is done by going backwards in the table i.e. U3, U2, U1, U0, U-1, U-2, U-3 etc. I noticed that you�ll reach the inverted Golden ratio -0.618 faster than its reciprocal. I also made table that proves my statement above.
