Find the area of the region bounded by the curves(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y=x , y=1/(x^2) , and x=2

I know after you sketch it you have to take the intergral of the top function minus the bottom function from the points that they intersect. I am stuck however because one function does not appear to be on top throughout the interval. Any help would be great...
