Did you graph the bounded region? This will help you set up the integral.

Recall that the area between two curves is

I hope this helps!

Yes, I graphed the bounded region but when I set up my integrals, I got a negative answer, which clearly was incorrect.

I had an integral of ((4-3x) - x^3)) from x = -1 to x= 1 + the integral ((x^2) - (4-3x)) from x = 1 to x = 4/3. - Aug 10th 2008, 10:24 PMChris L T521
