    @Sebastiano the huge advantage of inkscape is that you can create graphs or figures of any kind (especially good for differential geometry and topology) insanely quick.

Solution: I just used the Bezier tool to fit the desired area under the curve and then filled this selected are with the colour of choice.

I would solve it this way:

  • draw a straight line to connect the curve with your x-axis (press F6 and keep Ctrl pressed to ensure the line is straight)
  • use the fill bounded areas tool (paintbucket icon, the U hotkey) by clicking anywhere on the enclosed area formed by the curve, the axis, and the line you just drew
