# Definite Integrals

The definite integral of a function computes the area under the graph of its curve, allowing us to calculate areas and volumes that are not easily done using geometry alone.

# Basic Properties of Integrals

If $$\int_0^1 f(x) \, dx = 4$$, what is the value of

$\int_0^1 2 f(x) \, dx ?$

If $$\int_0^1 f(x) \, dx = 2$$ and $$\int_0^1 g(x) \, dx = 6$$, what is the value of

$\int_0^1 \left( 6 f(x) + 2 g(x) \right) \, dx ?$

If $$\int_0 ^ {4} f(x) \, dx = 3$$, what is the value of

$\int_0^{4} \left( 3 - f(x) \right) \, dx ?$

If $$\int_0^{10} f(x) \, dx = 27$$ and $$\int_0^5 f(x) \, dx = 7$$, then what is the value of

$\int_5^{10} f(x) \, dx ?$

Suppose $$f(x)$$ is an odd function and $$g(x)$$ is an even function such that

$\int_0 ^ {5} f(x) \, dx = 7 \hspace{.6cm} \int_{5}^{15} f(x) \, dx = 8 \\ \int_{-5}^{0} g(x) \, dx = 1 \hspace{.6cm} \int_{5}^{15} g(x) \, dx = 2$

What is the value of $\int_{-5}^{15} \left( f(x) + g(x) \right) \, dx ?$
