DEFINITE INTEGRATION

1. Let f(x) be a function defined on [a, b]. If

∫ f ( x) dx = F(x), then F(b) – F(a) is called the definite integral of f(x) over [a, b]. It is denoted by ∫ f ( x )dx . The real number a is called the lower limit
b a

and the real number b is called the upper limit. 2.

f ( x ) dx =

F(x) + c ⇒ ∫ f ( x ) dx = F(x)]b =F(b) – F(a) a
