You have one slit which it is sent light through and in one point at a screen they measure the intensity with adding all the intensities from different rays who has different angels at the point. The E in the point is found from adding the E from all the rays and then you can find the intensity afterwards. Here is a picture of how you measure the E from all the rays. Here is an mage from my book:

I understand this formula 36.5 because the only variable in intensety is E and since 36.4 (from the text) has mesaured the new E you can see that the only difference between the new and the maximum field is what is after E0 in36.4

But then it says that what is the I for a point when there are two slits and the I in a point in one lsit is affected from the waves from both. I don't see how this works. They use the formula for intensity for two rays found from a phasordiagram which in the end gives the formula 35.10 (shown in link below):

where I0 is found from formula for intensity with E from two waves:
