## Homework Statement

Find the area of the region that is inside the circle r = 6cos(theta) but outside the cardoid r = 2 + 2cos(theta)

## Homework Equations

r = 6·cosθ

r = 2 + 2·cosθ

## The Attempt at a Solution

intersections of the two curves.

6·cosθ = 2 + 2·cosθ → 4·cosθ = 2

cosθ = 1/2 → θ = ±π/3

Can someone finish the integral for me, i'm not good at integrals, this is as far as i can get. thanks for any help.

A = 2 x (1/2) ∫ [(6·cosθ)² - (2 + 2·cosθ)²] dθ
