Be able to interpret what the integral or area below a given business function (e.g. marginal cost) represents (e.g. total cost). Be able to compute that integral (area) given the function and limits. Be able to relate the area between two curves (functions) on a Cartesian graph to the algebraic representation as a definite integral of a difference of those two functions.
