[tex]\int_0^{-x} f(t) dt = -\int_0^x f(t) dt[/tex]

One technique would be to try to use what we know about integrals to simplify the expression on the left side to see if it is equal to the expression on the right side. Is it necessary to start our integral from 0, or can we use any antiderivative of f ?
