Does anyone know how to start or do this problem. I don't have an example in my book of it.

$\displaystyle \int_{-8}^ {6} f(x)= 2+e^x $

That is a nonsense problem. That is, it show the confusion of whom so ever wrote it

$\displaystyle \int_{-8}^ {6} f(x) $ is a definite integral,**a number**!

Whereas $\displaystyle 2+e^x $ is**a function of x**.

I'm sorry,

Use a definite integral to find the area between $\displaystyle f(x)= 2+e^x$ and the x-axis over the integral [-8,6] - Nov 17th 2008, 04:03 PMMathstud28
