Can someone explain how the integration of 1/x = ln x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand the usual way results in division by zero and that the derivative of ln x = 1/x

So my question is, how is the quantity of area under the curve from 1 to x relate to the

natural log of x
