i sketched the graph(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

found that i should integrate from -3 to 4

then set up the integral as the integral from -3 to 4 of (-y) - (12-y^2)

after evaluating it i got -34.66666667 - 22.5

which is -57. 1666667

but the right area is 57.16666667

what did i do wrong what got me the wrong answer?
