Easy to find their intersection points:

(1, -2) and (3, -2)

effective height between x = 1 and x = 3

= (-x^2 + 4x - 5) - (x^2 - 4x + 1)

= -2x^2 +8x -6

area = ∫(-2x^2 + 8x - 6) dx from x = 1 to 3

= [(-2/3)x^3 + 4x^2 - 6x] from 1 to 3

= ( -18 + 36 - 18) - (-2/3 + 4 - 6)

= 8/3

check my arithmetic
