Find the area of the region enclosed by the parametric equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]x=t^3-2t[/tex]

[tex]y=9t^2[/tex]

[tex]dx/dt = 3t^2-2[/tex]

9t^2 - 1 = 0

[tex]t=\pm \sqrt {1/9}[/tex]

[tex]\int_{-1/3}^{1/3} (9t^2)*(3t^2-2) dt[/tex]

= -2/5

anyone know where i went wrong?
