  • The area enclosed by the curve $y=f(x)$,the $x$-axis and the ordinates $x=a$ and $x=b$ is given by $\int_a^b ydx.$
  • $\int x^n dx=\large\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}$$+c$.
Step 1:
Given $2y=5x+7$ and $x=2$ and $x=8$.
The area of the required region is shown in the fig.
The required area is $A=\int_2^8\large\frac{5x+7}{2}$$dx$
Step 2:
On integrating we get,
On applying limits we get,
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad=\large\frac{1}{2}$$[5\times \big(\large\frac{8^2}{2}\big)-$$5\big(\large\frac{2^2}{2}\big)$$+7(8)-7(2)]$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad=\large\frac{1}{2}$$[5\times 32-10+56-14]$
Hence the required area is $96$sq.units.
