Find the area of the region in the first quadrant enclosed by x-axis, line and the circle x2 + y2 = 4.

The equations are and the circle

From the figure we can see that the x-axis is the area OAB and it si shown by shaded region.

Now, the point of intersection of the line and the circle in the first quadrant is .

Area OAB = Area ΔOCA + Area ACB

Area of ΔOCA =


Area of ABC =

Therefore, required area is = .
