Hello, urmiprincess!

Did you make a sketch?

Find the first-quadrant area bounded by the axes and the functions:

. .Code:| B | ...o (4,4) | ...*:::* : | ...*:::::::* : | ...*:::::::::::* : A o2::::::::::::::* : |:::::::::::::* : |:::::::::D:* : E - - o - - - - o - - - - - - + - O| * 2 4 | * | * | * C *-4 |

. . They intersect at

We want the area of quadrilateral

. . Drop perpendicular

Trapezoid has: .

. . Its area is: .

Right triangle BED has: .

. . Its area is: .

Therefore: .
