    Area between two curves

    Sketch the region enclosed by the curves y = x + 2, y = 16 - x^2, x = -2, and x = 2. Decide whether to integrate with respect to x or y. Draw a typical approximating rectangle and label its height and width. Then find the area of the region.


    I got 51.67. Is this correct? Thanks!
