Many Mathematica parameters don't work on Wolfram Alpha. I tried filling -> f which it does not recognize.

I am trying to plot a simple region bounded by $y = x^2$ and $y = x$ and shade that region in red.

I typed in

 plot[x^2,x,{x,0,1}] red filling 

and I got something really dumb. I don't want to make those inequality plots either.

  • $\begingroup$ I used up my 14-day trial. Is there no way to go around it? $\endgroup$ – Hawk Jun 9 '12 at 3:41
  • $\begingroup$ It manages to interpet plot area between x and x^2 (see here for WA link, see here for image). Is the red shading absolutely necessary? $\endgroup$ – Zev Chonoles Jun 9 '12 at 3:46
  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm I guess it's kinda okay. It's not REALLY that important...though it wouldn't hurt to know. $\endgroup$ – Hawk Jun 9 '12 at 3:48
  • $\begingroup$ I mean the method fails for circles $\endgroup$ – Hawk Jun 9 '12 at 3:49

How about region x^2<x:
