Set up the integrals to evaluate the area of the planar region bounded by (y^2)-8y+13, y-x= 9, y = 2 and y = 7

by horizontal slicing, by vertical slicing.

Evaluate only for the method that yields the fewer number of integrals.

You need to check what is the upper graph and what is the lower graph, over the interval `[2,7]`  such that:

`y = 2 => 2^2 - 8*2 + 13 = 1`

`y = 2 => 2 - 9 = -7`

`y = 7 => 7^2 - 8*7 + 13 = 6`

`y = 7 => 7 - 9 = -2`

Notice that the upper curve is `x = y^2 - 8y + 13`  and the lower curve is `x = y - 9` .

You need to evaluate the definite integral such that:

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 8y + 13 - (y - 9)) dy = int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy`

You need to use the property of linearity of integral such that:

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy = int_2^7 (y^2)dy - int_2^7 (9y) dy+ int_2^7 (22) dy`

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy = (y^3/3 - 9y^2/2 + 22y)|_2^7`

Using the fundamental theorem of calculus yields:

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy = 7^3/3 - 9*7^2/2 + 22*7 - 2^3/3 + 9*2^2/2 - 22*2`

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy = 343/3 - 441/2 + 154 - 8/3 + 18 - 44`

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy = 335/3 + 128 - 220.5`

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy = 335/3- 92.5`

`int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy~~ 19.16`

Hence, evaluating the definite integral yields `int_2^7 (y^2 - 9y + 22) dy ~~ 19.16.`
