Hey Guys! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the area of the "loop" (I'm guessing it's called) formed by the set of parametrics: --> x(t)=t3-3t and y(t)=t2+t+1 2. Relevant equations I've already drawn the graph and as said before the curve creates a "loop", I have to find the area insed that "loop" and I don't know where to start. 3. The attempt at a solution Here is the graph: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Parametric+plot+(t^3-3t,t^2+t+1) I know I probably have to integrate using y*dx..but I don't know where to separate the loop in order to integrate. I have no idea what the limits are. Thanks in advance!
