Write a Riemann sum and then a definite integral representing the area of the region, using the strip shown in the figure below where the upper line is defined by 6x + y = 12 and the other line is defined by y=x^2-4. The figure, which I cant get on here, is just the area bounded between those two equations. I do not need the Riemann sum, I just need to find: (a) What is the approximate area of the strip with respect to x (the strip is horizontal)? I found the limits of integration which is from [0,2]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea how to find the area of the strip, and after that I can figure out the integral with no problem.
