Area of a bounded region
The question says Using a graphing calculator to graph the region bounded by the graphs of the function given below and use the integration capabilities of the graphing calculator to approximate the area of the bounded region to three decimal places.
y= 3-2cosx
y=x³ - 2x² + x + 2

Thank you for your help :)

Thank you for your help :)

graph the two equations

find the x-values of the three points of intersections ... I would store each x-value in A, B, and C.

use the fnint function to find the area.
