5.2 Integration & Anti-derivatives
Question #4 (Medium): Evaluating Integrals in Terms of Areas
If the graph is not provided with the question, drawing the function helps visualize the geometric shapes
to calculate in terms areas. Calculate the area of the geometric shapes that are usually divided by the -
intercepts or other grid lines where the curve changes its course. Lastly sum up the areas as the total
area under the function given by the definite integral.
Evaluate the integral by interpreting in terms of areas.
