The problem is and only things I know is one is circle of radius 2 and the other is parabola, but not sure how to proceed to find area. Please advise.

I would express the area $\displaystyle A$ as: $\displaystyle A=2\left(\int_{0}^{1} \sqrt{3x}\,dx+\int_{1}^{2} \sqrt{4x^2}\,dx\right)$ Can you proceed?

Was this a multiple choice question? Also, was it given as a calculus problem?

I would use the formula for a parabolic cap (which I derived using calculus), along with the difference between the area of an isosceles triangle and circular sector to write: $\displaystyle A=\frac{4}{3}(\sqrt{3})(1)+ \frac{2^2}{2}\left(\frac{2\pi}{3}\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\right)=\frac{\sqrt{3}+4\pi}{3}$

$\displaystyle x^2+ y^2= 4$ is, of course, the circle with center at the origin and radius 2. $\displaystyle y^2= 3x$ is a parabola with vertex at the origin and horizontal axis, The two graphs cross where $\displaystyle x^2+ y^2= x^2+ 3x= 4$ so $\displaystyle x^2+ 3x 4= (x 1)(x+ 4)= 0$. Since $\displaystyle 3x= y^2$ cannot be negative, x= 1. That is why MarkFL has his first integral from x= 0 to x= 1 and his second from x= 1 to x= 2.
