We are given that `int_(0)^(1)(15xsqrt(x^2+9))dx=50sqrt(10)-135` and we are asked to evaluate `int_(1)^(0)(15usqrt(u^2+9))du` .

These are definite integrals. If we restrict the variables to the real number line, a definite integral is typically defined as the Riemann integral; i.e. an infinite sum of geometric shapes. Definite integrals can be described as a "signed" area.

By the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, we can find the definite integral by integrating the indefinite integral and...
