maybe it’s a stupid question but I think I didn’t get really the meaning of the TH1::Integral() method with a defined bin range.
If I have a histo defined as h(“title”,“title”,23,1,24)
and I take h->Integral(2,24)
what is the integration range I’m considering?

Note that bin
24 is the “overflow bin” in your case, so when filling it will “collect” everything from
h->GetXaxis()->GetBinLowEdge(24) to “infinity”.
means your histogram has 23 bins, where the lower bin border is 1.0 and the upper is 24.0. So the bin number 1 goes from 1.0 to 2.0, bin number 2 from 2.0 to 3.0 etc.
Integral(2,24) gets the sum of the bin content for bins 2 to 24. Now - that bin 24 is special, it’s the bin that contains everything “to the right” of the histogram, i.e. all
Fill() with values
