# Area Between Two Curve

Hello. What I have here is 2 curves. The problem I have is that the given curves does not have numerical coefficients and I don't know how to solve for it (v and u) or should I even solve for it in the first place? So, I really don't know how to approach this kind of problem.

Can you guys share your thoughts on how should I solve for these unknown terms (v and u) and how should I approach this problem? It would really be of great help to me, mentally.

What would you do if u and v were numbers?

I can proceed with the integral by using vertical strip.

Give it a try.

You are given two points of intersection (3,12) and (-1,0).

What can you do with that information?

I substituted the points of intersection and got the u and v. I hope what I did was right.

I substituted v=1 and u=2 to the integral with bounds 3, -1 and got this area. May I ask if I used the correct bounds (3,-1) using vertical strip?

Thank you very much for making me realize about the points of intersection. I would not have moved on with this problem if it wasn't pointed out. Please continue helping others.
