# Math Help - Simple integration question to calculate distance

1. ## Simple integration question to calculate distance

I am trying to integrate a simple equation. I have an equation for the velocity at any particular time. I wish to integrate it to find the distance travelled.

The equation is:-

$v(t)=10-40 \frac{du}{dx}$

what is the variable $u$ , and how is it related to $x$ ?
