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