Find the area enclosed by the polar curve

r = 2 e^(0.9theta)

on the interval 0 <= theta <= 1/8

and the straight line segment between its ends.

2. Relevant equations

arclength =

3. The attempt at a solution

I need help finding the boundaries for this problem. Is it from 0 to pi? I'm not sure how exactly would I go about finding the limits of integration(boundaries) since it starts from the origin and ends at the x-axis.
