What is dx?
Renato Lopez (11 months ago)
its just the length of each square inside the integral. It gets closer to zero as the squares get smaller because they decrease in length and also more are added to the total integral area.

Yoni Smadja dx is the difference between two points . A difference which is almost equal to zero , but not zero . U might say this difference is equal to 1/100 or 1/1000 or 1/100000000 or 1/10000000000 , yes the amount of difference which I mentioned above is very very small and almost equal to zero , but they are still some values which you can see and count. dx is some thing that small that a human can't imagine . It's just a previous point before zero , which is obviously not understandable for humans.you can make any number as small as you can by putting more zeros in ur denominator as I did in above examples, but u can never achieve to a point which is just a previous point before zero. So the conclusion of my comment is that dx which is a difference between two points Let's say difference between points X and a so , dx = x - a Such that x is almost equal to a Which we say in mathematics as" x proceeds to a" . An arrow symbol is used to say this phrase which I don't have here. Than you can say that dx proceeds to zero It's a very beautiful concept in mathematics derived by humans. As we are staying at a same point because x and a are almost equal but at the same time we find a difference at that point. Hope.u get something..

Very helpful video, please keep doing videos about mathematical theory
Which software you are using ........and hardware.....please tell Khan Sir if possible?

I cannot put in words how helpful this approach of really understanding the theory behind the mathematics is, rather than just memorizing things like the Õ great educational system tells us to do.

PS: After you're done with Differential Calculus, It would be really great if you do the same approach of explaining the theory behind Linear/Multi-linear/Matricial and/or Tensor Algebra. Or maybe get into Stochastic Calculus as it's on the same lines of the current series. Applying your approach to these subjects would be really enlightening since they almost look daunting when you try to get to the bottom of the theory.

That is definitely an integral.

Thanks for Doing these videos again better

Please can you decrease the size of the cursor, as it distracts and doesn't let concentrate on what you write.

First to comment. Once more a very helpful video. Thanks Sal Khan, keep your good work going
