How did you manage to ask this question without using the notation or the word "integral"?
The antiderivative of 30 is 30s.
Hi all, I'm very new to calculus and have been coping well so far but one thing has me stumped.
(30+5s)ds = 70 where s = 0 to 2
I've got the answer off a calculation website but I can't get my workings to reach this conclusion.
Heres what I have so far
30+(5s^2/2)
30+(5/2 x s^2)
subsituting with '2'
30+(5/2 x 2^2) = 40
substituting with '0'
30+(5/2 x 0^2) = 30
but I currently believe it is 2 minus 0 to get the result i.e 40 - 30
I'd like to just add the 2 results and get 70 but why am I adding instead of minusing?
Thanks in advance for any help at all.

Thanks very much, understanding now.
And apologies for what must have seemed like a lazy question but I'm just getting to grips with the wording and I'm not sure how to enter the integral symbol but I'm going to give it a go...
\int
Hope that was right and thanks again for your help, really appreciate it.

E.g., [TEX]\int x^2\,dx=\frac{x^3}{3}+C[/TEX] gives . You can see the code in other people's posts if you click "Reply With Quote" button under the post.
