128.25

#### Explanation:

the area under a curve from point a to point b is the Definite integral of that curve evaluated from point a to point b

therefore,

area from a to b under the curve

therefore, after integrating your above function

we get its antiderivative as

the antiderivative of

now, Subtract the value of

#= F(b) - F(a)#

and you get

=
