Question 02 (a) 

FullSolution Problem. Justify your answers and show all your work. Simplification of answers is not required. Sketch the bounded region that lies between the curves and and find its area. 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hints below. Read the first one and consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! If after a while you are still stuck, go for the next hint. 
Hint 1 

Drawing the picture really helps. 
Hint 2 

Find the points of intersection and figure out which curve is on top. 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used all the hints, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. A picture is included below. First, we determine the points of intersection. Setting the two curves equal to each other, we have Bringing the terms to the right hand side, we have and so the points of intersection are and . Notice either form the picture or testing a point between 0 and 2 (say ) and plugging it into both equations, we see that the curve is bigger between 0 and 2. Hence, our area is completing the question.
