The command gives the approximate value of the definite integral of a function with respect to the x variable over a specified interval. This command is used in conjunction with the graph of the function.
While viewing the graph of a function, press to view the MATH menu.
If more than one function is graphed, use to select the desired curve. Use to trace the curve to the lower limit and press . Repeat for the upper limit.
Note: If the cursor cannot be placed close enough to the desired limits, use the ZOOM feature and repeat the process.
Once you have pressed after selecting the upper limit, the region of integration will be shaded and the value (or approximate value) of the definite integral over the specified interval will be displayed.
Note:The value obtained is affected by the tolerance setting, tol. It can be changed in the tolerance editor which is accessed by pressing .
