    Area using limit process, just need heeelp setting up!

    Ok my book has this question f(y)= 4y-y^2 for the interval 1<(or equal to) y<or equal to ) 2

    I have to find the approximate area of the region between the graph and the y-axis using the limit process

    I've only done these area problems with x. Is it the same process with y? Or do i have to change it? I vaguely recall an extra step somewhere, but have no clue what it is.

    thanks in advance

    It's the same. Just make sure you integrate with respect to y and not x.
