  • $\large\frac{d}{dx}$$(x^n)=nx^{n-1}$
Step 1:
$y=\mid x+3\mid=\left\{\begin{array}{1 1}-(x+3)\;for\; x<-3\\x+3\;for\; x\geq -3\end{array}\right.$
When $x<-3$
When x=-4,
When x=-5,
When x=-6,
Step 2:
When $x\geq -3$
$x=-1\Rightarrow y=2$
$x=-2\Rightarrow y=1$
$x=-3\Rightarrow y=0$
Step 3:
Required Area=Area of region ABC+Area of region OAD
$\qquad\qquad\quad=\int\limits_{-6}^{-3}\mid x+3\mid dx+\int \limits_{-3}^{0}\mid x+3\mid dx$
$\qquad\qquad\quad=\int\limits_{-6}^{-3}(-x-3)dx+\int \limits_{-3}^0(x+3)dx$
Step 4:
On applying limits we get,
