# Invincible Integration!

## Observe the formula on Miss IBM's screen:

## The variable *N* can be any constant you want!

__Examples:__

You always get a square when you shade the area from **zero(0)** to *N* since the constant function is equal to *N*! What happens if *N* is equal to a negative number? Well...

Squaring a negative number gives you a positive number since *negative* × *negative* = *positive*! Also, notice some of the integral rules shown in the 2nd example. Finally, 1 more thing: *N* can be any __real__ number you want it to be. (Imaginary numbers aren't allowed.)
