Dear student
Remember that from the definition of acceleration:change in velocity/time taken= slope of velocity time graph.
In other words,
change in velocity = product of acceleration & time
which graphically comes out to be the area enclosed between the acc-time curve & the time axis.
Hence the statemnet quoted in the ques is true.
We hope your query is resolved.
