For part c)

The equation of ON is y = -0.5x which is correct;

i know to solve it i need to find the integral between the limits 5/2 and 0 of the area of the curve - the area of the line, but what i don't understand is why that is.

If I take the integral of the limits 2 and 0 of the curve, which area I'm i actually finding? It seems like I am doing things without understanding them, could someone show me a sketch? Also, if I'm finding the integral of the line y = -0.5x of the limits 5/2 and 0, which area am i exactly finding? Why is it the integral between the two equations which is the shaded bit?

If anyone could clear this up would be great.
