i am given the equations for two ellipses:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(x^2)/3 + y^2 =1 and x^2 + (y^2)/3 =1

and am told to find the area within both.

i can just find the volume of both ellipses by taking the integral of the equations and then add them right? That's what first comes to mind when i saw this problem. Thanks!!!
