    im unsure how to tackle this question

    the diaggram show ths curve y=x^2-2x+3
    and the sraight line y=x+7
    which intersects at the points p and q
    a) by solving a suitable quadratic, show that the x coordinate of p and q are -1 and 4
    b) determine which of the regions a and b shaded on the diagram has the greater area

    can someone please explain how to do it

    Which part? Part a is simply solving an equation while part b you have to get values for both areas and then compare.

    For part a, since both y=x^2-2x+3 and y=x+7 then x^2-2x+3=x+7.
    For part b, integrate the curve between the coordinates of P and Q this will give you the area of region A and then to calculate the area of region B you will have to calculate the area of the trapezium under the line PQ and then subtract the area of region A.
