Find the area of the region enclosed by the parabola x^{2} = y, the line y = x + 2 and the x-axis.

We can see from the figure that the area of the region bounded by the parabola x^{2} = y, the line y = x + 2 and the x-axis is shown by shaded region that is Area OACO.

The points of intersection of both the curves are A (-1, 1) and C (2, 4).

Thus,
