### Can there be a measurable set that integrals have the same given value if their integral on $\mathbb{R}$ are the same?

We know for an integrable function $f$, if $\int_\mathbb{R} f=1$, then $\forall \lambda\in [0,1] $, there exists a measurable set $E$ that $\int_E f=\lambda$.
Now consider integrable functions $f$ ...
