# Homework Help: Graphical Integration

How would you graph the integral of $$f(x) = x$$? What is the process to graph an integral?

Thanks

Do you mean to graph this "beauty":
$$\int x \ dx =\frac{x^{2}}{2}+C$$

It's a family of parabolas...

The way to "graph an integral" is to first find the integral (which will involve a "constant of integration") and then integrate! Since you will have a different function for every value of C, you will, as dextercioby said, a "family" of graphs.
