Why is antiderivative and area under the curve the same thing? Its not at all intuitive to me(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Derivative is the slope at a point and its opposite is area?? Can someone just explain me why when we are finding an antiderivative, we are actually finding area under the curve

i dont buy the fact that slope of a curve and area under the curve ae opposite of each other
