(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

y = 2 − x^2, y = |x|

sketch and find the area of the region determined

by the intersections of the curves

2. Relevant equations

regular f - g of integral

3. The attempt at a solution

The absolute value puzzles me. How would it work then?

I mean we know how each equation looks like.

So I would do

integral of (2-x^2) - |x| from a to b

Now how would I get the intersection point and evaluate this integral with |x|?

Thanks
