Can tell me how u get? Like: what is your value for the shaded and unshaded area respectively, area of region OAPB, coords.of B AND Coords.of Q

I want to see where my workings and answer differ...

let $f(x) = e^x$
$g(x) = 4 - e^x$
$h(x) = 2(x - \ln{2}) + 2$

$A = \int_0^{\ln{2}} f(x) \, dx + \int_{\ln{2}}^{\ln{4}} g(x) \, dx$

$B = \int_0^{\ln{2}} f(x) - h(x) \, dx$

calculate $\frac{B}{A}$.

Thanks i found my mistake already..i forgot to add the unshaded area into the calculation of the area of the whole plot
