Here's a few problems from the book:

Find the area of the region R that lies below the parabola y=4x-x^2 above the x-axis, and above the line y=-3x+6.

It shows that area = $\displaystyle \int_{1}^{2} \int_{-3x+6}^{4x-x^2} dydx + \int_{2}^{4} \int_{0}^{4x-x^2} dydx$ (I'm not sure what's wrong with the LaTeX? here's what I used: \int_{1}^{2} \int_{-3x+6}^{4x-x^2} dydx + \int_{2}^{4} \int_{0}^{4x-x^2} dydx )

No idea how they got those limits.
