I hope this **isn't** homework! I'ts very badly phrased if it is. The curve y= cos(x) doesn't "bound" any area and, since y is negative for x> [tex]

\frac{\pi}{2}[/tex], it's not clear what area you are talking about.

How about giving us more information about exactly what question you are asking. How did this problem come up?

It could be 0 or 2, depending on the context of the problem. :tongue2:
