Is there any clear explanation as to why exactly derivatives and integrals cancel each other [other than the integral is the anti-derivative]?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

To my understanding the derivative gives the slope of a curve at given point whereas the the integral finds the area under the curve. How are these two opposites?
