How does the difference quotient undo what the Riemann sum does or vice versa. In terms of the two formulas?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would assume that working a difference quotient backwards would be similar to working a Riemann sum forward, but in reality as the operations go this couldn't be further from the truth.

any takers?
