I was just wondering about the dx and the end of an integral and evaluating integrals by substitution. When you evaluate integrals by substitution you can treat the dx as the differential of x. This seems to convenient lol. Some one must ahve known that the dx in an integral was the differential of x all along when they decided to end the integral symbol with the term dx! Could someone please give me insight into this. Jeeze I hope Im making some kinda sense here.:tongue2:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
