# What is the net area between f(x)=ln(x^3-x+2)/x^2 in x in[1,2]  and the x-axis?

Area $\approx 0.601$
The net area of a function $f$ in the interval $\left[a , b\right]$ is given by $A = {\int}_{a}^{b} f \left(x\right) \mathrm{dx}$.
$A = {\int}_{1}^{2} \ln \frac{{x}^{3} - x + 3}{x} ^ 2 \mathrm{dx}$
From wolfram alpha, we have $A \approx 0.601$
