# Find the area enclosed by the x axis and the following curve (Integration) watch

1. 2(ii) y=3x^2 - x^3

Please can you check my working as I feel I have gone wrong somewhere:

x^2(-x+3)

"Integration symbol between 3 and 0" (-x^3 + 3x^2)dx
[-0.25x^4 + x^3] 3 and 0

(-0.25 * 3^4) + 27 = 27/4

Thanks.
