# Integration help needed C2 watch

1. Find the equation of the curve which passes through the point (-1,0) andwhose gradient at any (x,y) is . Find the area enclosed by the curve, the axis of x and the ordinates x=1 and x=2.

Please help with the question. I cant find the equation. I am struggling to find a way to.

y=13x+1 is not equal to to the equation of the curve - you've found the equation of the tangent to the curve at the point (-1,0), but the question doesn't require you to find that.

You have integrated correctly to find the equation of the curve, so how can you find the value of c?
