ok, so in one of my lectures our prof. showed us a graph, (that pretty much looked like an upside down parabola.) We had to find the area under the curve, and she told us we had to use integration. I'd never even heard of it before, and I don't understand what all the symbols mean, or how to use them. Can anyone help me out?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
