    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?

    Yes, when I tried sketching it I got 3. But I'm just not extremely confident with that. What do you think?
