hello
i am really having trouble with this question.
Can anyone help??

the equation of the curve is y=6x^2

$\displaystyle A = \int_0^5 150 - 6x^2 \, dx$

3. thank you,
but i couldnt understand?

Calculate the area under the curve (standard integration) and subtract that from the rectangular area defined by the limits.
at x=0, y=0; and at x=5, y=150.
Area of rectangle: 5x150 = 750
Now subtract the area under the curve.

I assume that you know that the area between two functions is

$\displaystyle \int_a^b f(x) - g(x) \, dx$ , where $\displaystyle f(x) > g(x)$

for your sketch, $\displaystyle f(x)$ is the constant function $\displaystyle y = 150$ and $\displaystyle g(x) = 6x^2$
