Area enclosed by two curves, part 2

Calculus Level 5

The parabola \(f(x)=x^2\) is tangent to the graph of \( g(x) = x^4 + ax^3 + \color{red}cx^2+ bx +1\) at two distinct points. Given that the \({\color{purple}{minimum}}\) area enclosed by these two curves is \(\frac{p}{q}\), where \(p\) and \(q\) are coprime positive integers, find the value of \(p+q\).

Remark: try the case for \(c=1\) here
