    You know that the area is \displaystyle \int_a^b y \, \mathrm{d}x = \int_a^b y \, \frac{\mathrm{d}x}{\mathrm{d}t} \, \mathrm{d}t

    So you can replace y and \frac{\mathrm{d}x}{\mathrm{d}t} by their respective expressions and the limits should follow from from x=0 at which you need to find the value of t that makes this so and then do the same for the other limit (which you've cropped out of the question, so...)

    You've been given parametric equations, you can make it \frac{dy}{dx} by differentiating x=cos2t and y=cosect.

    Anyways, I'm assuming you should've done part a and b.

    Find what t equals when x=0 .

    This will be your limits for when you integrate to find the shaded area.

    I hope this helps you start of?

    Oh, I get it - Thanks mate
    what about 6 a? I tried solving it by parts but it seems I am missing something Name:  IMG_20160329_012520.png

    Yeah I figured out how to obtain the limits in terms of t but getting the integral terms was the challenging bit - someone has explain it to me.
    i have posted posted another question and I will be very glad if you could help

    I tried integration by parts too and got .

    Doesn't look right though. :s: is another answer I got. :lol:

    I'm sorry but I'm not great at integration by parts yet. Maybe the way you did it is wrong? What exactly did you do step by step when integrating?

    expand cos(A+B) - cos(A-B) and see if that helps


    dont open if youre doing step...

    'Factor formula' -  \displaystyle \cos A - \cos B = -2\sin \left (\frac{A+B}{2} \right )\sin \left (\frac{A-B}{2} \right ) .
