In cases such as these, we treat y as the independent variable and divide the interval 3c, d4 into n subintervals of width ∆y = 1d – c2>n (Figure 6.17). On the kth subinterval, a point yk
* is selected, and we construct a rectangle that extends from the left curve to the right curve. The kth rectangle has length f 1yk*2 – g1yk*2, so the area of the kth rectangle is 1 f 1yk*2 – g1yk*22∆y. The area of the region is approximated by the sum of the areas of the rectangles. In the limit as n S ∞ and ∆y S 0, the area of the region is given as the definite integral
A = lim nS∞
k = 1 1 f 1yk*2 – g1yk*22∆y = Ldc 1 f 1y2 – g1y22 dy.
➤ This area formula is analogous to the one given on page 412; it is now expressed with respect to the y-axis. In this case, f 1y2 – g1y2 is the length of a rectangle and dy represents its width. We sum (integrate) the areas of the rectangles 1 f 1y2 – g1y22 dy to obtain the area of the region.
Given these points of intersection, we see that the region R1 is bounded by y = -x2 + 3x + 6 and y = -2x on the interval 3-1, 04. Similarly, region R2 is bounded by y = -x2 + 3x + 6 and y = 2x on 30, 34 (Figure 6.15b). Therefore,

Integrating with Respect to y There are occasions when it is convenient to reverse the roles of x and y. Consider the regions shown in Figure 6.16 that are bounded by the graphs of x = f 1y2 and x = g1y2, where f 1y2 Ú g1y2, for c … y … d (which implies that the graph of f lies to the right of the graph of g). The lower and upper boundaries of the regions are y = c and y = d, respectively.

EXAMPLE 3 Integrating with respect to y Find the area of the region R bounded by the graphs of y = x3, y = x + 6, and the x-axis.
SOLUTION The area of this region could be found by integrating with respect to x. But this approach requires splitting the region into two pieces (Figure 6.18). Alternatively, we can view y as the independent variable, express the bounding curves as functions of y, and make horizontal slices parallel to the x-axis (Figure 6.19).

Solving for x in terms of y, the right curve y = x3 becomes x = f 1y2 = y1>3. The left curve y = x + 6 becomes x = g1y2 = y – 6. The intersection point of the curves satisfies the equation y1>3 = y – 6, or y = 1y – 623. Expanding this equation gives the cubic equation
y3 – 18y2 + 107y – 216 = 1y – 821y2 – 10y + 272 = 0, whose only real root is y = 8. As shown in Figure 6.19, the areas of the slices through the region are summed from y = 0 to y = 8. Therefore, the area of the region is given by

QUICK CHECK 3 The region R is bounded by the curve y = 1x, the line y = x – 2, and the x-axis. Express the area of R in terms of (a) integral(s) with respect to x and (b) integral(s) with respect to y.
EXAMPLE 4 Calculus and geometry Find the area of the region R in the first quad- rant bounded by the curves y = x2>3 and y = x – 4 (Figure 6.20). SOLUTION Slicing the region vertically and integrating with respect to x requires two integrals. Slicing the region horizontally requires a single integral with respect to y. The second approach appears to involve less work.
Slicing horizontally, the right bounding curve is x = y + 4 and the left bound- ing curve is x = y3>2. The two curves intersect at 18, 42, so the limits of integration are y = 0 and y = 4. The area of R is
