# Thread: Area between two functions?

1. ## Area between two functions?

Sketch the region enclosed by the given curves. Decide whether to integrate with respect to x or y. Then find the area of the region.

If someone could walk me through th steps, that would be great! Thanks!

is the x-axis also a boundary for the region? did you sketch the two functions and make a decision on how to proceed?
