# How to do a double integral

1. Oct 29, 2012

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$^{n}$ integrates as $\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}$

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.
