First notice that the curves both intersect at and which will be our limits of the integrand. Now, if you sketch it out, you'll see that over the interval .

So the area bounded is given by:

Should be simple to integrate. - May 17th 2008, 08:54 PMTheEmptySet

Doh', I really should have listened to my professor and drill those derivatives into my head...
