I am having trouble with this question: (QUESTION AS ATTACHED)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is what I tried to do:

I found the intercepts of the difference of the two functions which I found to be only 8.

Then I integrated this into the new function:

[tex]\int{\sqrt{2x}-x+4}[/tex]. with limits of 0 and 8 (I don't know how to Latex this)

This, according to my Graphics Calculator yielded 21.3.

However, the answer is 18, what have I done wrong?

Edit: [tex] \int_0^8 (\sqrt{2x} -x + 4)\,dx[/tex]
