## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have tried various subtraction of these coordinates and applying them to the formula but the answer is in the back of the book and I fail to see how one could get that answer.

The book does not give one example of how to calculate with 2-forms there is but a brief description and then 4 problems.

This is a problem from Edward's, 'Advanced Calculus: A Differential Forms Approach'

The answer is a negative rational number. I also fail to see how I derive a rational number from this.
