the cosine function at 0 takes value of 1 and at pi takes -1 so the area under f(x)=cosx from 0 to pi is 0 now you only need to get the f(x)=x from 0 to pi and that is just a triangle you dont even need integration .-)

\[\int_0^{\pi} x + \cos(x)dx\] \[F(x)=\frac{x^2}{2}-\sin(x)\] \[F(\pi)-F(0)=\frac{\pi^2}{2}\]
