Find the area of the region enclosed by the curves, and decide whether to integrate with respect to x or y. y=3/x, y=6/x^2, x=5(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

anyone able to explain how to approach a problem like this I've tried it a few times and get the wrong answers but i dont even know what kind of answer im supposed to get like just a number, or a function, something with variables, any help would be great thanks ahead of time.
