Compute the area between the two functions as an integral along the x-axis or the y-axis:

x=abs(y)

x=6-y^2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I sketched the graph to determine which was to the right and which was left finding out that 6-y^2 is to the right then I found out where the limits of integration would be and go the to be +sqrt6 , -sqrt6 however I'm not getting the correct answer and I'm unsure of how to integrate the absolute value function, I tried to split it up into two separate integrals but it didn't work
