Let $f$ and $g$ be real functions which are integrable on the closed interval $\left[{a \,.\,.\, b}\right]$.

Let $\lambda$ and $\mu$ be real numbers.

Then the following results hold:

Indefinite Integrals

$\displaystyle \int \left({\lambda f \left({x}\right) + \mu g \left({x}\right)}\right) \rd x = \lambda \int f \left({x}\right) \rd x + \mu \int g \left({x}\right) \rd x$

Definite Integrals

$\displaystyle \int_a^b \paren {\lambda \map f t + \mu \map g t} \rd t = \lambda \int_a^b \map f t \rd t + \mu \int_a^b \map g t \rd t$
