so when you find the integral of a gradient function we're doing the inverse of differentiation and finding the equation of the line. But when we find the integral of the function of x using definite integration we're basically trying to find the area under a curve. So basically the function of integration depends on what we're finding the integral of? Right?

oh and the gradient function is the equation of a line that has been differentiated, right?
