I feel embarassed for asking this, but:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An integral is just dividing a curve into smaller sections and adding up their areas, right? The smaller the section the closer the estimate?

How does an integral differ from an anti-derivative?

What do the numbers at the top and bottom of the integral long s sign mean? From (bottom value) to (top value)?
