(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the area inside both of the curves

r = 4 cos@

r = 2+2cos@

@ = theta

2. Relevant equations

-------

3. The attempt at a solution

i will say 4cos@ = 2+2cos@ to find the intersection points

4cos@ = 2+2cos@

2cos@ = 2

cos@ = 1

@ = 0 !!

I need the other points!!
