the area between the curves $\dpi{100} \small y=x$ and $\dpi{100} \small y=x^2$.

The curves intersect at A(1,1)
Draw a normal to AC to OC(x-axis)
therefore, the required area (OBAO)= area of (OCAO) - area of (OCABO)
$\\=\int_{0}^{1}xdx-\int_{0}^{1}x^2dx\\ =[\frac{x^2}{2}]_0^1-[\frac{x^3}{3}]_0^1\\ =1/2-1/3\\ =\frac{1}{6}$
Thus the area of shaded region is 1/6 units
