Illustration 9.8 here i have a doubt that why we have taken negative 1/3 for the integral for 0 to 1/3 in which function is (1-x)^2

# Doubt from area

In question 2 why shaded area taken as excluded from parabola and equation of line why didnt we take the region between the parabola and equation of line that is my marked region 2 why we took area of region 1

Region 2 is the area bounded by parabola and line

But they have asked area bounded by parabola, the line and **the x axis** and hence only region 1 is to be considered

Please help

Your are correct

The area which you have written is the area towards the right of the y axis only , you have not considered the area towards the left of y axis

Then how tp find that

Question no 10 answer key says option b as answer but i think its answer for when parabola is y^2=4x and not -4x
