Haha. Math jokes. *smiles in not getting it*
@Agent New Mexico, ikr it's so easy *sweats in calculus*
@Agent New Mexico, it’s essentially saying if you integrate a formula and you do not have values on that S looking thing like 0 and 1 then when you complete the integral you need to add + C for a constant variable you do not know.
@Agent New Mexico, after completing an integral, you gotta put + C, because the original derivative could of had a constant. Everyone always forgets the + C and gets points taken away for it.
@Boomhauer, having those ptsd moments where a teacher is like NoooooPE that sh*t ain’t right. No + C no credit!
@Duffles, I don't know what any of that means, so I'm just going to nod and say "yes". *nods* Yes.
@Agent New Mexico, *laughs in half getting it because i never got as far as integrals in calc*
@Duffles, English, mathematician! Do you speak it?!
@Suicide Squad Sucks, lol nope that’s why I use numbers because me bad with words... lol
@Agent New Mexico, If you’re actually curious to know the answer, I’ll do my best to give you one. Imagine you have a line and it only goes from x=0 to x=5 and. We’ll call this line f(x). We want to find the area under this curve. An “integral” is a way to do that. If it is “bounded,” like how our line is only going from 0 to 5, then when doing the integral of f(x) from x=0 to x=5, the result will not need a “c” because “c” means a constant. We have already taken into account the constant term by bounding our integral to constant x values (in simple terms). BUT if we did not, like in the case in the picture, we need to put an undefined constant term after completing the integral. Many people forget this when first learning the concept.
If you know derivatives, an integral is the opposite operation of a derivative, or an “anti-derivative,” akin to how addition is the opposite of subtraction. It’s like calling an addition symbol an “anti-subtraction” symbol, if that makes sense.
@Agent New Mexico, I would explain but I'm a little late to the party
@Boomhauer, my one calculus class had online homework. I put the "+c" and it marked it wrong so i went over my integral and made sure i did it correctly and tried everything...I clicked "give up" and it said I needed "+C" not "+c" ....
@Duffles, this was one of the few things it seems like I remembered on my AP calc test today
@mrGrizzIes, hey at least you won’t miss that part of the question.
Calculus exam was terrible today
Haha, having been through hell classes like these I actually get it
I ALWAYS FORGET TO ADD THE CONSTANT. Not because i dont know its supposed to go there, but because half of the professors want it. The other half doesn't and honestly, im hurt.
Yes, I get this. It is quite humourous. Indeed.
I get it. I'm just not going to tell any of you what it means!
Everybody forgets +C
It’s weird how prof’s say you don’t need a constant and it doesn’t matter. *two weeks later* prof: “you all lost 3 points because you failed to add a +C to the final answer”
It’s the best feeling when you start doing integrals with limits so the integration constant cancels out - and in Physics that’s pretty much all of them.
Motherf*ckin Calculus is why I can't pass anything
ok, all this math crap aside. mother is focusing on one child and neglecting the drowing child. like all those kids drowing in bad grades cause they can't remember a simple formula.
