The page discusses the curve known as an astroid or hypocycloid of four cusps. In one quadrant, the astroid may be thought of as a falling ladder,a problem often found inintroductory Calculus. In thiscase, the curve is also known as a glissette.

Calculus texts have problems on finding the Areas between Curves in the chapters on applications of Integration. The NCB suggests finding some of these examples in a text and trying them in Harumi's graph. Experimenting on a computer with the approximation for finding the area using rectangles is fascinating. As the number of rectangles increases, the approximation improves. Therefore, mathematicians define the area A between the two curves as the limit of the sum of the areas of these approximating rectangles where n is the number of rectangles bounded between a and b.
