just add the portion of the function e^y
i.e integrate the function y^2-3+e^y from -1 t0 1 and you will find e -1/e +16/3
That's exactly what he says he got!
Steelers72, did you notice that your answer is negative? "Area" cannot be negative. Your error is that you have subtracted from when, because, for every y, is larger than , you should be integrating .
