## Main Question or Discussion Point

I`m reading on Integrals, and at the introductions author mentions three basic concepts, The Rectangle Property, The Addition Property, and The Comparison Property.

I understand what the 1st and 3rd properties mean, and I have a question concerning the 2nd.

"The Adittion Property: The area of a region composed of several smaller regions that overlap in at most a line segment is the sum of areas of the smaller regions."

I don`t understand what that part in red means??

I don`t understand what "overlap" means, nor do I understand what "in at most a line segment" means?

Thanx in advance
