Sure, the area, $\displaystyle \displaystyle A$ between two curves $\displaystyle \displaystyle f(x)$ and $\displaystyle \displaystyle g(x)$ on an interval $\displaystyle [a,b]$ is given by $\displaystyle \displaystyle A = \int_a^b [f(x) - g(x)]~dx$

provided $\displaystyle \displaystyle f(x)$ is always the top function on the interval $\displaystyle \displaystyle [a,b]$

You can use symmetry here and Jhevon's hint then

$\displaystyle \displaystyle \int_0^a (c^2-x^2)-(x^2-c^2) ~dx = 65$

where 'a' is the solution to $\displaystyle \displaystyle c^2-x^2=x^2-c^2\implies x = \frac{c}{\sqrt{2}}$

6. Thanks. I really appreciate it. I worked on this problem a good 20 minutes. and Somehow the c's kept canelling out.

How do the c's cancel out?
