First Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTCI) : Assume that f is a continuous function 3 on the closed interval [a,b] and that F(z) = / f(t)dt . Then F’ (2:) = f(:r) . G 2 Proof : Consider F(z) = f f (t) dt as the area under the graph of f above the interval [0, 1:] . Then F(z+h) is the area urider the graph of f above the interval [a, z+h] and F(z+h) — F(z) z+h is the area of the “ thin strip ” from a: to z+ h, i.e., F(.r + h) — F(z) = / f(t) dt .
