This article mainly determines the two bases of calculus namely, differential calculus and integral calculus from the geometric background. Differentiation is performed by calculating the slope of a tangent line drawn graphically to a function. Definite integration of a function, on the other hand, can be measured by calculating the area under the graph of a function by comparing this area to a hypersolid's content using Cavalieri's principle.
