    T/F Question on integrals

    Answer T/F , if T --> give proof, if F --> give counter-example

    The definite integral of the product of f and g w.r.t. x DONT EQUAL the product of thier definite integrals with same u/l limits ?
    I think its false.
    counter example:
    f(x) = 0 , g(x) = 0

    My answer is correct?

    That seems fine. All you need to prove a statement false is a single counterexample, even though this statement is usually true.
