1.1.1. Definite Integrals 1.1.1. Definite Integrals Recall Recall that that Definition. if f is a continuous function on the interval [ a , b ], then we divide [ a , b ] into n subintervals of equal width x= (b-a)/n with end points x 0 = a , x 1 , x 2 , …, x n = b . Let x 1 * , x 2 * , …, x n * be sample points selected in these subintervals. Then the definite integral of f from a to b is = = n i i n b a x x f dx x f 1 * ) ( lim ) (

Hence in the case where f is positive, by passing to the limit, we see that the area of the region under the curve y= f(x) is given by = = = b a n i i n dx x f x x f A ) ( ) ( lim 1 *
In case f takes both + and – signs, the Riemann sum is the sum of the areas of the green rectangles minus the sum of the areas of the gold rectangles. a b

Hence the definite integral may be interpreted as the "signed area" of the region limited by the curve y= f(x), the x - axis and the lines x = a and x = b, where the region above the x -axis (green) is counted with + sign and the region below the x -axis (gold) is counted with – sign a b - - + +

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
