(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the area of the region enclosed by the following curves:

f(y)=1-y^2

g(y)=y^2-1

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm confused by the graph because the region enclosed has positive and negative parts, and I can't determine whether f(y)>g(y), g(y)>f(y), or what. I'm not sure what to integrate here.

Thanks, I appreciate the help.
