Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question, if I have a function that is continuous on the interval [a, b] where a <= b, why would integrating this interval backwards (i.e. taking the definite integral from b to a) be the negative of taking the definite integral from a to b? Can someone explain this from the definition? Thanks.
