How to do a double integral

  1. Oct 29, 2012 #1
    Hi, I have a very limited knowledge of calculus, and even less of integration. However I know that the general rule for integration is
    x[itex]^{n}[/itex] integrates as [itex]\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}[/itex]

    Is there a similar rule for double integration and is there a rule that can be extended to multiple integrals beyond double?

    The rules of integration are developed assuming a single integral. Double integrals and other iterated integrals can be evaluated by means of a series of single integrals.

    In other words, there are no special rules of integration for double integrals,etc.
