    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?
