So, as you can see in the attached pictures, I needed to find the common area bound by the 2 curves.

Is the method I have outlined correct because according to the marking scheme it just says

[itex]\int g(x)[/itex] - [itex]\int f(x)[/itex] (The limits are the same, -3/2 to 1)

The way I see it, this does not account for the little bit below the x axis. Am I wrong because I always thought with these area questions you had to the 2 sides of an axis separately.
