Hello. I'm sort of confused about when you can integrate... Say for example if you have(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); dxyou're sort of integrating a "hidden" constant, right? So you increase the power by one and either use the upper and lower limit or just add c:x+c. And similarly if you havexdx, again you increase the power by one and divide:0.5x^2, right? But when are you allowed to integrate? Namely, must you always first obtain dxor dvariablesomehow? How do I obtain this in the following case for example:Y=2x? If it is not necessary, then what difference is there in integratingxorxdx? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!
