Compute the area of the region in the fi…rst quadrant bounded

on the left by the curve y = sqrt(x), on the right by the curve y = 6 - x,

and below by the curve y = 1.

well, looking at the curves, The area will be (x2-x1) dy or (6-y - y^2 )dy ...check that.. with the limits from y=1 to ymax, or

ymax occurs when

x are the same, or

y^2=6-y

y^2+y-6=0

(y+3)(y-2)=0

so the first quadrant ymax is 2

check that.
