Refer the graph in the attached image.

From the graph it appears that the area is `~~` 2/3 of the rectangle.

Area of the region= `~~` 2/3(Area of rectangle)

Area of the region =`~~2/3(pi*1)=2/3*3.14=2.09`

Actual Area of the region=`int_0^pisin(x)dx`

`=[-cos(x)]_0^pi`

`=[-cos(pi)]-[-cos(0)]`

`=-cos(pi)+cos(0)`

`=-(-1)+1`
