solve , you will get two solutions for y.
First find the intersection points by setting the two equations together:
These points will be your limits of integration.
Now, recall: where over
So, find the larger function (i.e. the one that is more to the right since we're integrating with respect to y) and this will be our
Did you make a sketch?
Determine the area bounded by: .Code:\ | * \(-3,3) | o | \::*. | \:::::*. \::::|::* \:::|::::* \::|:::::* \:|::::* \|::* - - - - - - - - o - - - - - - * |\ * | \ * | \ |
The graphs intersect at (0,0) and (-3,3).
We'd best integrate "sideways": .
