There are several techniques for derivation that have proved that the derivative for x^n is n*x^(n-1). There is the method of incrementation, working extensively with limits, etc... I'm unsure of the antiderivative. Is there any mathematical proof for the antiderivative or did they simply say that it reverses differentiation and came up with it just by looking at the method for derivation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
