    you could use geometry and the area of a triangle formula or you can use integrals to subtract the two areas under the curves

    I used geometry and got 6. Which isn't a choice, any ideas?

    you should find the base to be 4, height to be 2

    For some reason I put height down as 3. So the answer is 4?

    yep the area in the bounded region is 4
