\(\int_{0}^{5} h(x)dx = 0\) That is what I got after trying to figure out the area of a square using an integral. h(x) = 5 creating a square... the area is 25 but why this integral no work? A line is a curve too!!! angry

First, the integral of 5 with respect to x is 5x

Next, you evaluate this 5x at x=5 and at x=0

h(x)=5

 

\(A=\int_{0}^{5} h(x)dx \\ =\int_{0}^{5} \;5\:dx \\ =\left[5x\right]_0^5\\ =25-0\\ =25 units^2 \)

 

My integral works just fine.   wink
