    I know that the height is not 2 somewhere around 1.9 or 1.85 which is the f()
    It is x = 1.0 and x = 1.5
    and the strip of the shaded is 0.5 unit wide

    Somehow i can get the asnwer

    It appears the base $b$ of the rectangle is 0.5 units, while the height is:

    $ \displaystyle h=f(1.5)=4-1.5^2=1.75$

    Thus, the area $A$ (in units squared) is:

    $ \displaystyle A=0.5\cdot1.75=0.875$
