To find the definite integral of ( x , dx ) over the interval ([2, 4]), you use the fundamental theorem of calculus. First, you integrate (x) with respect to (x) to get ( \frac{x^2}{2} ). Then, you evaluate this antiderivative at the upper and lower limits of integration and subtract the result of the lower limit from the result of the upper limit.

So, integrating ( x , dx ) gives ( \frac{x^2}{2} ). Evaluating this from 2 to 4:

[ \left[ \frac{x^2}{2} \right]_{2}^{4} = \frac{4^2}{2} - \frac{2^2}{2} = 8 - 2 = 6 ]

Therefore, the definite integral of ( x , dx ) over the interval ([2, 4]) is 6.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
