Hello,
while the Filling option for Plot is great, how can I use it (or
another feature of Mathematica 8) to fill in only the area between a
curve and a vertical line and a horizontal line?  For instance,
between (1) the function Q= A * P ^ E, where A and E are given
constants, (2) a horizontal line e.g. P = 100, and (3) a vertical
line, e.g. Q = 20.  The fill is only inside the triangle-like area.
This would be the "harberger triangle" showing consumer surplus in
economics.

Thanks!
