Indefinite Integration We first need to consider an example of differentiation e.g.1 Differentiate (a) y x 2 3

(a) y x 2 3

dy

(b) y x 1 2

dx

Equal !

(b) y x 2 1 dy 2 x dx

The gradient functions are the same since the graph of y x 2 1 is a just a translation of

y x 3 2

Indefinite Integration Graphs of the functions y x 3 2

e.g. the gradient at x = 1 is 2

y x 1 2

At each value of x, the gradients of the 2 graphs are the same dy
