Opposite of derivative.  Plus C.

but why the fuck the dx next to the function

Only reasonable way I have of calculating them that I have is the power rule

Re: Fucking integrals

The derivative is dy/dx.
You have the derivative, dy/dx = blah blah, and you're trying to find y = bladdy bleedy.
So you multiply both sides by the dx, get dy = blah blah dx, then you integrate, which is the adding up of all the little d's, and you get y = bladdy bleedy.

Oh cool. I'll mess around with that idea. Thanks.
