I have a question that I am working on and am having difficulties knowing how to approach it. It looks like this:
The following parametric equations trace out a loop.
x = 6 - (5/2)t^2
y = (-5/6)t^3+5t+1
A)Find the t values at which the curve intersects itself:
t= +/- ______
b) What is the total area inside the loop?
