    No, the integral would be from -3/4 to 0 because that's the x coordinates of where they intersect.

    The area in this case should be considered between the curve and y axis. It would not be appropriate as well as possible to consider the area between the curve and the x axis. Please have a look at the attached solution.

    Thanks a ton! I solved it and got integral 0 to 3/2 of -2y^2 +3y =9/8 after plugging in the limits etc.
