#### Explanation:

y = -x+4

so we have to find the intersection. They "y axis" means that x = 0, so that is the lower bound of the integral. To find the upper bound, we have to find where y=-x+4 crosses the x axis. That occurs when x = 4.

So we can set up the integral:

which is

which is 8.

That should be the answer I think.
