My reasoning is that 'undoing' the derivative gives me the derivative.

Eg is 1/3x^3 an integral of x^2?

Thanks.

**charlie**, Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 7:58amThanks- that was quick!

Therefore, given my scenario, I could use the integral to calculate the area under the curve described by the derivative?

oops, meant to write

......gives me the integral.
