I know this is a bit off topic but perhaps it will help you understand what i'm trying to get at.

I need to find the area between the curves y=6cos(3x) and y=6sin(6x), x=0, x=pi/6... Does the compression factor 3 and 6 have an effect on their intersection in the given interval?

I get the period has been compressed by these factors but I'm not sure how to go about finding the solution in that interval...
