Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suppose its because there is no function whose slope at any point cannot be in the form e^x^2. Actually only about 20% of functions can be integrated. I read that some where though I'm not sure about the figure of 20.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The integral is exist but we can't express it in terms of elementary functions (say all functions that you know in calculus)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually zero % of functions can be integrated if by "integrate" you mean find a formula for a function whose derivative is what you want.
