    How would you approach this question in this Maths paper, and if you can, please explain to me why.
    It is from the OCR exam board, Core 2: June 2008 Question 5 part (I).

    First I would find the y values of the two horizontal lines (by finding the points of intersection with the curve), say y1 and y2.

    Then I would think about the integral as two regions: the region where you want to integrate x from 0 to 2 and y from y1 to y2, and the region where you want to integrate between the curve and the line y=y2.

    Find the curve as a function of y (so y=2+root(x+2) => x=f(y)), and write both integrals as [integral from y1 to y2] [some integral over x domain] *** dx dy

    Then when you work out the middle part "[integral over x domain] *** dx" you can incorporate the two integrals over y together.
