Is there some type of command to help do Integration problems? I managed to just make a method for integrating a linear function, but I also need to know how to solve like X^x and then (1/1+x^5). I'm just asking if there is a method or something because I actually used MatLab and that application does it for you.

There aren't some standard methods for integration in Java although you could build some yourself. However Matlab (and some graphic calculators) have functions especially for these problems. I would stick with Matlab.

@Tarrell: Alternatively, a Google of "java integral calculus" returned me a pile of hits, so you might want to try it yourself. I can't speak for any of the products listed though.

See once again I figured it out after realizing that it was asking for the recursive way to do it. Like the whole delta x divided by the number of rectangles using for the approximation. I thought it was asking me to find the antiderivative and then go about it. I haven't did that old method since Cal1 so I forgot all about it. But thanks for the tip because I would not have realized that.
