Definite integral gives you the area, and area can't be negative. But while doing exercises, i cam across a lot of definite integrals, which after integrating, were giving negative answers. Why is it so?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, when you integrate this definite integral, \[\int\limits_{1}^{3} (x1)^{3} dx\] the answer is 3/32 is it so because of the negative limits?
