# How do you find the area bounded by #y=(x+1)/x#, #y=x^2+1# and x=2?

##### 1 Answer

The area is

#### Explanation:

Start by finding the intersection points.

This means that

Now complete a rudimentary sketch of the graphs.

So we have bounds of integration of *above* the rational function. The integral to evaluate will therefore be:

Evaluate using
