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.

Press .

If more than one function is graphed, use     to select the desired curve. Enter the value of the lower limit at the prompt (or trace the curve to the approximate point). Press . Repeat for the upper limit.

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.

Use ClrDraw in the DRAW menu to redraw the graph without the shaded region.

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      . Choosing a smaller value for tol yields a more accurate integral but takes longer to process.
