Thanks Steven, I keep this in mind in the future.

One of the best ways to approach this problem is a graphical approach: First plot the four lines ( y = x + 4, y=0, x = 2, and x = 10). You find that this encompasses a region that can be described as a combination of a rectangle and a triangle. From here you can use your knowledge of geometry to compute the area of each of these shapes and add them for the result.
