## Question:

Use Antiderivatives and Definite Integrals Theorem to evaluate the integral.

{eq}\int^2_0 4x^3 dx {/eq}

## Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

Evaluating a definite integral is most easily done by applying the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. If we can find an antiderivative for the integrand, then the formula that will lead us to the result of this integral.

{eq}\int_a^b f(x) dx = F(b) - F(a) {/eq}
