To find the surface area of the solid created by revolving ( f(x) = x^2 + e^x ) around the xaxis over the interval ([2, 4]):

Determine the formula for the surface area of revolution, which is given by: [ SA = 2\pi \int_{a}^{b} f(x) \sqrt{1 + \left(\frac{dy}{dx}\right)^2} , dx ]

Find the derivative of ( f(x) ) with respect to ( x ), which is: [ f'(x) = 2x + e^x ]

Use the derivative to find the expression for ( \frac{dy}{dx} ).

Substitute the expression for ( \frac{dy}{dx} ) into the formula for surface area.

Integrate the resulting expression from ( x = 2 ) to ( x = 4 ) to find the surface area of the solid.
