# Confused about which area bounded by the curve I'm calculating

Find the area bounded curve $y = (x - 1)^3$ , $x-$axis and the ordinates $x = -1$ and $x = 2$.

I know how the curve will look like also how to find the area but I getting a feeling that while evaluating I'm getting the wrong area.

I don't know how to draw curve in mathjax so I have used an image.

Kindly help.
