And once we prove this, we call f(x) the integrand and F(x) the integral . integrand integral integrand = the operand of the integration operation. integral = ∫integrand . Thus our Table of DERIVATIVES and ANTIDERIVATIVES becomes a Table of Integrals. Integ als. 135 27. F(x ANTIDERIVATIVE{f(x)} 27.

Proof Pr oof : Let f(x) be the cur ve between x = a and x = b with f(a) = A and f(b) = B. Divide the interval [a,b] into n sub-intervals ∆ x i and construct rectangles in step-like fashion as shown in the figure. Let F(x) = the area under the cur ve of f(x). area curv ar B f(x) 4321 4321 4...
