Math1011 Fall 2000 Prelim III-A1 Consider the function ƒ (x) = 1 / x 2 on the interval [1,2]. Write the Riemann sum for ƒ corresponding to the subdivision of [ 1, 2] into 5 equal subintervals and the choice of left-hand endpoint in each subinterval. (Do not evaluate the sum!) Without evaluating the sum above, or the definite integral 2 1 2 x dx , decide which of these two numbers is bigger. Explain.
