    so i'm preparing for an exam in calc. and i'm studying the FTOC. my book says:

    why is it using "t" in this definition - it seems incorrect, as tho the "t's" should be "x's". any ideas?

    You know what that says right... g(x) is the integral of f(t) as t approaches x

    Therfore, the derivative of g(x) is the same as f(t) where t=x.

    that makes sense, but it doesn't appear to say that in the equation. oh well. i understand what it means. i guess that's good enough.

    ok. so i was reading my calc book and came across an equation which was the integral of f(u). it made me laugh. so i got to thinking...

    what is a general integral of f(u)?

    ...when someone is an @ss on the road. :D :haha:

    any other ideas?
