I need to find the area between y=x and y=x^2(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So this is what I did:

[tex] A = \int (x^2-x) \,dx [/tex]

Then I found the limits of integration x=0 and x=1 because thats where the two graphs intersect

[tex] A = \int^1_0 (x^2-x) \,dx [/tex]

I ended up with an answer of -1/6

What did I do wrong?
