# Definite Integral | Mathematics

Definite integrals are the extension after indefinite integrals, definite integrals have limits [a, b]. It gives the area of a curve bounded between given limits.

, It denotes the area of curve F(x) bounded between a and b, where a is the lower limit and b is the upper limit.

**Note:** If *f* is a continuous function defined on the closed interval [a, b] and F be an anti derivative of f. Then

Here, the function *f* needs to be well defined and continuous in [a, b].

**Example:**

**Solution:**

### Properties of definite integrals –

These properties can be used directly to find the value of particular definite integral and also interchange to other forms if required.
