										Area under the curve from x=2 to 4 will be 4. This is obtained by simple integration of the given function which is x - 8/x.

Let A be a point between x=2 and 4. So the integral reduces to int(1+8/x^2) from x=2 to A + int(1+8/x^2) from x=A to 4. But as said the point divides the area into two equal parts. So int(1+8/x^2) from x=2 to A is equal to int(1+8/x^2) from x=A to 4.

4=2 int(1+8/x^2) from x=2 to A.

Solving this, we get the value for A to be option B
