Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Integration is the reverse process of evaluating a derivative. Graphically, it is simply the area under the given curve. We divide the curve into small elements and calculate the area of the rectangle whose length is f(x) and breadth dx. Then we add up the areas of these small elements
