# Math Help - Definite integral number to find area of curves?

1. ## Definite integral number to find area of curves?

How many definite integrals would be required to represent the area of the region enclosed by the curves y = cos2x sinx and y = 0.03x2, assuming you could not use the absolute value function?

Have you tried sketching the graphs to at least determine the regions you can integrate over?
