I got area is

#### Explanation:

The curves:

On the interval

We'll use washers and find

#= pi int_-2^1 ((x-3)^2 - (x^2+1)^2) dx#

#= pi int_-2^1 ((x^2-6x+9) - (x^4+2x^2+1)) dx#

#= pi int_-2^1 (-x^4-x^2-6x+8) dx#

#= pi[-x^5/5 -x^3/3-3x^2+8x]_-2^1#

#= pi[(-1/5-1/3-3+8)-(32/5+8/3-12-16)]#

#=pi[ -33/5-9/3+5+12+16]#

#= pi[-66/10 -3 +5+12+16]#

#= pi [-6.6 + 30]#

#= 23.4 pi#
