I'm confused regarding the limits required for the following question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the area in the plane between the graphs of y = x2 and y = x3 for x non-negative.

The limit for y would be from x^2 to x^3 but what about x? It's lower bound would be zero but as for the upper bound I have no idea. The answer of the above question comes out to be 1/12. Help?
