Area Under Curves
Sketch the region enclosed by the curves https://webwork.math.lsu.edu/webwork...dcd3fb8181.png and https://webwork.math.lsu.edu/webwork...11259e3d61.png, and compute its area as an integral.

The cool thing about this one is that, WLOG, you can switch around the x and y in both equations and get the same area :D if it makes it easier to think about that is.

Okay, I'm behind the times again. "WLOG?" (Shake)

Oh, it's just 'without loss of generality'... I hope I used it in the right context :rolleyes:

hehe, im my case, i use "wlog" when i am comparing arbitrary variables.. but still, i cannot judge whether you have used it correctly(or wrongly) in that context.. Ü anyways, as long as we understand what it means, it will just be fine.. Ü
