Determine the points of

intersection

MAPLE COMMAND

OUTPUT / SOLUTION

Plot and display the

graphs of f and g on the
same axis over the
domain of [0, 3] as
follows:
f(x) with line thickness
= 2 and color = green.
g(x) with line thickness
= 2 and color = blue
display both graphs.

region bounded by the
graphs f(x) and g(x) over
the domain of [1, 2].

(1.5 marks)

Label the graphs of f and

g as follows:
Position the label f(x) at
the coordinate (2.9, 14)
and align = RIGHT.
Position the label g(x) at
the coordinate (2.9, 1)
and align = RIGHT.
