This  Worksheet  uses the mid-ordinate rule to establish a simple ratio of areas from which the integral power rule can then be deduced. Also an indication is given of how a simple ratio of dimensions can be used to deduce the differential powe rule.

 


 

 

 

This  Reduction  of the integral and differential power rules shows how the ratios  A/B = n  and  x/c = n  can be obtained
