Area between two curves
I thought I was working the problem right but I guess not since I had the wrong answer. Can someone please help.
Sketch the region enclosed by the given curves. Decide whether to integrate with respect to x or y. Then find the area of the region.
So I graphed the curves and saw the intersections were at -1.414214 and 1.412136 ( I assumed these were my from and to for the integral).
The area of 3x^2 is 5.631984 and the area of x^2+4 is 13.18687.
I also assumed that the part we wanted to know was the area of 3x^2 - the area of x^2+4.
I am not sure of this problem. Can anyone help?
