I'm having a problem with this question:

Find the area bounded by the curve [tex] x=cos{t}\ y= e^t[/tex],

[tex] 0\geq t\leq\pi/2\ [/tex],

and the lines [tex] y=1\ x=0 [/tex]

... I came up with [tex] \int e^t(-sin{t})dt [/tex] from [tex] 0\to\pi/2[/tex]

But apparently I'm missing steps... which i'm not aware of! Please help!
