    Here's the plot, x going from -1 to 3, y from -(squareroot(3)) to squareroot(3)

    so the region is the area of a circle , minus that parabola bit

    we can find the area of this region by integrating |dw:1354696620853:dw| \[=\int\limits_{x=1}^{x=2}\int\limits_{y=0}^{y=\sqrt{3(x-1)}}\text dy\text dx\] \[=\int\limits_{y=0}^{y=\sqrt{3}}\int\limits_{x=\tfrac{y^2}3+1 }^{x=2}\text dx\text dy\]

    y^2 + (x-1)^2 = 4 and y^2 = 3(x-1) move it so that the circle is centered at the origin; the area stay the same, we just move it y^2 + (x-1+1)^2 = 4 and y^2 = 3(x-1+1) y^2 + x^2 = 4 and y^2 = 3x x = sqrt(2^2-y^2) and x = 1/3 y^2 and it really doesnt matter if we have this oreiented long the x or y soo if its simpler to play with as y = sqrt(2^2-x^2) and y = 1/3 x^2 thats fine too
