5.3 The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus Part II
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus Part II
If f is a continuous function on [a,b] then
where F is any antiderivative of f, that is, a function such that F'=f.
Once you find the antiderivative of f(x), you evaluate the end points from a to b and then subtract the antiderivative function.
Lets look at an example.
Once you find the antiderivative, you plug the top number 5 into x and subtract that antiderivative function from an antiderivative function with the number 3 in x.
You can check your answer by using your calculator.
Plug into your calculator.

Once fnInt pops up, put fnInt( ,X,3,5). You will get 98/3
Try this problem!
You will see that this antiderivative is:
Thus you plug in 4 into the x and then subtract the antiderivative with 2 in the x value.
