Find a parametrization of the curve x2/3+y2/3=1 and use it to
compute the area of the interior.
What I did was y=(1-x2/3)3/2
I then integrated this function from 0 to 1 (using maple since it is a crazy integral) and got the answer to be 3/32 [tex]\pi[/tex].
However this is wrong, I probably wasn't suppose to do it the way I did anyway considering that the integral is so complicated.
So what should I do? I am learning Green's theroem right now if that helps, although I may have skipped ahead in it a bit I'm not sure.
Edit: Hm ok I have figured out what to do, the answer is 3/8 pi. How come my original answer is 1/4 of this though?
