I've only learned the area between two curves and integration along the y-axis...I'm really confused on how to start this one. Do I find the slope of the lines and go from there? Any help would be greatly appreciated

I would take the whole area and subtract the non shaded parts

in case you're wondering the last term is the area of a triangle

Don't quote me on it though, someone may have a better answer! - Feb 15th 2011, 03:31 PMArchie Meade
You could also calculate

In other words, the area under the curve from

then add in the area of the upper triangle and subtract the lower one..

@ e^(i*pi)

the last part isn't a triangle (the curve is cosx there).
