Find the area bounded by y=1-x^2 and y=x-1 .

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i know it can be done like this

[tex]\int^1_{-2} [(1-x^2)-(x-1)]dx[/tex]

we sort of shift the x-axis below . From what i understand , integration is a process of finding the area under the graph but that way of doing is not area under the graph ?
