## Homework Statement

f(x) = √(x+2), g(x) = d/dx (f(x))^(f(x)). Find the total area enclosed between g(x) and √(x^2) correct to 3 decimal places.

## Homework Equations

Knowledge of differentiation and integration - specifically areas between curves.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've attempted to solve g(x) = √(x^2) on my calculator but I keep receiving an error message. I've defined f(x) as equaling √(x+2), and I don't see where I could be going wrong. I know after I've found the points of intersection, all I need to do is set up definite integrals over the relevant domains with the graph on bottom over said domains being subtracted from the graph on top.
