#1**+1 **

I'm assuming that you mean the x axis

We have a triangular area...

The line y = 2x - 4 and y = -3x + 16 intersect at the x value

2x - 4 = -3x + 16

5x = 20

x =4

So...x = 2(4) - 4 = 4

And the y coordinate is 2(4) - 4 = 4....and thid the height of the triangular aresw

And y = 2x - 4 intersects the x axis at x = 2

And y = -3x + 16 intersects the x axis at 16/3

So....we have a triangle with a base of [ 16/3 - 2] = 10/3 and a height of 4

So....the area is (1/2)(10/3) (4) = 20/3 units^2
