# Thread: area between parabola and lines SOS

1. ## area between parabola and lines SOS

Hello from Greece , I am very much confused with this exercise.Could anyone solve this ????????

Find the area between the parabola $x=y^2-2y-15$ and the lines $y=2$ and $y=-2$ and $y(x=0)$

The area is $A=\int_{-2}^2-(y^2-2y-15)\;dy=\ldots$

Why do you ask? You only have "to turn your neck 90 degrees". The horizontal axis is transformed into the vertical one, and reciprocally.
