## Homework Statement

find the area bounded by the parabolas [tex]y=2x^2-x-15[/tex] and [tex]y=x^2-4x-5[/tex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

[tex]x^2+3x-10=0[/tex]

I got x = 2 and x = -5; is that right?

If so, why do I keep getting an area of 76.17 when I integrate from -5 to 2? I end up with [tex](2.67+6-20)-(41.67+37.5+50)[/tex]
