Consider the region bounded by y = x^2, y = 5x+6, and the negative x-axis(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Compute the area of this region.

Im somewhat confused by what they mean by the negative x-axis?

The points of intersection between the two functions are [-1,1] and [6,36]

A = Integral -1 to 6 (5x-6-x^2)?

I'd appreciate if someone evaluated this problem for me step by step for I have spent several hours on it now without any clue.. Thank You!!
