    [SOLVED] stuck! calculusII

    find the area of the curves

    y^2 - 4x = 4 and 4x-y=16


    i know you can set this one to x = etc.... then u gotta evaluate the graph of the functions differntly kinda.. anyways this problem is giving me tons of trouble

    I take it you're saying you want to find the area bounded by the curve and the x-axis...

    You haven't told us our limits of integration... in other words, between which x values...

    It can't be, because the first function is not defined at x=-4.

    Quick question is this bounded by the y axis as well? I'm asking becuase you don't have shading to the left of the y axis?
