Hi Alll
how can I seperate calculate all the area difference when the orange line is below the black line and vice versa. In other words, calculating A1 and A3 seprately from A2.

What does your data look like? Are these curves analytic functions or discrete datapoints? Are they equally spaced in x?

Try something like this:
t = linspace(0, 10*pi, 500); % Create Data
y1 = exp(-0.1*t) .* sin(t); % Create Data
y2 = exp(-0.2*t) .* cos(t); % Create Data
icptidx = find(diff(sign(y1 - y2))); % Approximate Indices Of Intersections
icptidx = [1, icptidx, numel(t)];
areavct = cumtrapz(t, y1 - y2); % Cumulative Areas
for k = 1:numel(icptidx)-1
areas(k) = areavct(icptidx(k+1)) - areavct(icptidx(k));
xtxt(k) = (t(icptidx(k+1))+t(icptidx(k)))/2; % Used in ‘text’ To Label Areas
ytxt(k) = (y1(icptidx(k+1))+y2(icptidx(k)))/2; % Used in ‘text’ To Label Areas
plot(t, y1)
hold on
hold off
text(xtxt, ytxt, compose('$\\leftarrow Area = %.3f$', areas), 'Interpreter','latex', 'Rotation',60)
ylim([min(ylim) max(ylim)+0.2])
