Unformatted text preview: M miles toward the coast is M x f dx T ) ( 15 Use Simpson's rule to estimate T if 1000 M and the ocean depth (in feet), measured at 100mile intervals starting from P , are 13000, 11500, 10500, 9000, 8500, 7000, 6000, 4400, 3800, 3200, 2000 5. When approximating the definite integral 3 / 1 2 dx e x by using (a) the trapezoidal rule, (b) the Simpson’s rule, give for each case the number of subdivisions of the interval of integration that is required to guarantee an error of less that 10 − 4 . (It is not necessary to approximate the value of this definite integral). Recommended Problems (NOT to be handed in) Textbook, Page 526, Exercises 8.6, # 226 (even), 30, 36, 38.
