[tex]\int_a^b (x-x^2)dx[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What values of a and b make this integral's value maximum? I have tried to do it but cannot get it. I know that the maximum value of [itex]x-x^2[/itex] is 0,25. but I'm stuck from there.

I try to write the integral in the form of a riemann sum but (b-a)s cancel each other.what am I to do?

Please help about this
