# Thread: Using the symbolic method to solve the integral?

1. ## Using the symbolic method to solve the integral?

Use the symbolic method to calculate the integral of this function $\displaystyle w(x)=-x^4/324 + x^3/9 - 25x^2/18 + 7x, 0<x<18$

Is the symbolic method using the limit or just solving with the integral sign?

2. ## Re: Using the symbolic method to solve the integral?

If I recall correctly, this just means to use the anti-derivative form of the fundamental theorem of calculus to evaluate the definite integral.
