Your question is not clear at all.

When you say "under" the graph of

f(x) = 6x+1, the region would be infinitely large.

You will need to close it.

Is it bounded by the x-axis?

If so according to your interval part would be below the x-axis and part would be above it.

Make a graph to see what I mean, then clarify your question.

BTW, why would you need Calculus to find the area of a region bounded by straight lines?
