What I have learnt in school is that differentiation and integration are opposites.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

By integrating a function we find the area under the graph. So, integration gives us the area. Differntiation gives slope of the function.

If I am right by saying differentiation and integration are opposites, then is area under the graph the opposite of the slope of the graph?
