The area under the curve can be found using
Now we need to calculate dx so
so we get
Note that the area is negative because it is below the x-axis
Here is a graph. Good luck.
Now that I have read your question again, did you mean the part of the graph below the curve and inbetween the x and y axis. If so then
I don't know. The answer in mark scheme is...
Okay this shaded part is the area they want...
