# Antiderivatives

Chapters 11 and 12 described the derivative of a function and how derivatives may be used to answer questions in business and economics. From a basic set of rules, we were able to calculate a huge number of derivatives. In this section, we’ll reverse this process. Instead of starting with a function and taking its derivative, we’ll start with the derivative and find the function it came from.
