fnInt(f(var),var,a,b[,tol]) computes an approximation to the definite integral of f with respect to var from a to b. tol controls the accuracy of the integral computed. The default value of tol is 10-5. fnInt( returns exact results for functions that are polynomials of small degree.

fnInt( only works for real numbers and expressions. The Gauss-Kronrod method is used for approximating the integral.

Tip: Sometimes, to get an answer of acceptable accuracy out of fnInt(, substitution of variables and analytic manipulation may be needed.

fnInt(1/X,X,1,2)
		.6931471806
fnInt(ln(X),X,0,1) <a difficult example>
		-.999998347
fnInt(ln(X),X,0,1,e-11)
		-1
