My problem requires me to write an iterated integral for the area inside the circle r=2cos(theta) for -pi/2 <theta< pi/2 (circle of radius 1 centered at (1,0)) and outside the circle r=1 centered at the origin.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I can write an iterated integral for the circle of radius 1 centered at (1,0) and then subtract the area portion of the circle at the origin. But what is this portion of area? Can I write another iterated integral for this area portion and then subtract it from the iterated integral? How would I approach this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
