$-2$
According to Rule (4) in Table 5.4 : $\int_{0}^{2} (2t-3)dt=\int_{0}^{2} 2tdt+\int_{0}^{2} (-3)dt$ According to Rule (3) in Table 5.4 and because $0\lt2$, by Equation (2): $\int_{0}^{2} 2tdt+\int_{0}^{2} (-3)dt=2\int_{0}^{2} tdt-3\int_{0}^{2} 1dt=2\cdot(\frac{2^2}{2}-\frac{0^2}{2})-3\cdot(2-0)=2\cdot(2-0)-3\cdot2=4-6=-2$
