Worksheet for Section 5.1 Areas and Distances V63.0121, Calculus I Spring 2010 1. Draw the graph of f ( x ) = e x on the interval [0 , 1]. We are going to find the area below the curve on this interval. 2. Estimate the area by computing with a calculator. (i) L 2 and R 2 (ii) L 4 and R 4 (iii) L 8 and R 8 3. Show that L n = 1 n ± 1 + e 1 /n + e 2 /n + · · · + e ( n - 1) /n ² = n X i =1 e ( i - 1) /n n R n = 1 n ± e 1 /n + e 2 /n + · · · + e ² = n X i =1 e i/n n . 1
