Rules for Integrals

1. Sum rule:The integral of the sum or difference of two functions is the sum or difference of their integrals.

2. Constant multiple:The integral of a constant times a function is the constant times the integral of the function.

3. Power rule:The integral of is .

4. Integration by parts:The integral of a product is the first factor times the integral of the second minus the integral of the derivative of the first times the integral of the second.

5. Fundamental theorem of calculus, first formIf is continuous on then the function defined by is continuous on and for each in the open interval .

6. Fundamental theorem of calculus, second formIf is continuous on then where is any antiderivative of .

7. Change of variable for indefinite integralsIf is a differentiable function of , then and
