Learn how to find the area under a curve using definite integrals

Key Points

The area ‘under a curve’ is the area beneath the curve and between the x-axis and limits

The area under is a curve is found by setting up and evaluating a definite integral

Practice definite integrals to be successful in finding the area under a curve

If the area is underneath the x-axis the definite integral will evaluate to a negative number. Ignore the negative when writing the area since an area cannot be negative
