Find the area of x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2/3}/9 +y^{2/3}/4 =1

The parametrizations I used are x=27cos^{3}t y=8sin^{3}t

Area = [tex]\int xdy = \int_{0}^{2\pi} 27cos^3(t)24sin^2(t)cos(t)= \int_{0}^{2\pi} 27cos^4(t)24sin^2(t)=648((2\pi)/16+sin(4\pi)/64-sin(8\pi)/64-sin(12\pi)/192) = 81\pi[/tex]

Is this right?
