My conjecture, for the function image12.png bounded by between ‘a’ and ‘b’, is, the ratio of area A to area B is equivalent to the ratio of n to 1.

For all values of n inimage02.png, no values exist in the region bounded by 0 and 1; therefore no conjecture can be inferred.

 and image16.png, then my conjecture, of n to 1, holds true for all ratios between areas A and B.

For Negative Bounds:

Bounds –1 to 0

image17.png

The conjecture of n:1 is the exact opposite for conjecture of the negatively bounded regions in quadrant III. (1:n)

If a set of positive bounds were to be changed to negative, then the ratio between A and B in the positive bounds would be equivalent to that of B and A in the negative bounds. (see diagram explanation below)

As mentioned in question 2, my conjecture, of n to 1, holds true for all ratios between areas A and B, if a<b; as long the function in question is image12.png.

My conjecture, for the function image12.png revolved around the y-axis, bounded by between ‘0’ and ‘1’, is, the ratio of area A to area B is equivalent to the ratio of 1 to 2n. In correlation to the ratio of the function revolved around the x-axis, the ratio between area A and area B is the exact opposite.

Proof:

With the function in question being image21.png rotated around the x-axis, I was able to calculate area A by finding the intregal using the shells method, and by using simple international methods I was able to determine area B. The ratio between area A and area B is 2n to 1 (refer to diagram on the right)
