    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 if it makes it easier to think about that is.

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

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

    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.. anyways, as long as we understand what it means, it will just be fine..
