Robert Crescenzi Professor Horntrop Math 112-010 March 03, 2011 Matlab Assignment 1 Questions:  b.) While N = 10 and N = 100, no agreement between the exact answer and each  approximation was present in addition to  Left-endpoint approximation and Right approximation  of N = 1000.  On the other hand, while N = 1000 for trapezoidal rule, there was a four digit  agreement between the trapezoidal approximation and the true value. The true value equated to  2701.0114 and the trapezoidal approximation equated to 2701.043792 which are nearly identical  to each other. c.) In this case, the left-endpoint approximation and right-endpoint approximation are not  as accurate as the trapezoidal approximation by a certain factor in respect to the value of N.  Numerically, while N = 10, the left-endpoint approximation is approx. 53% and the right- endpoint approximation is  approx. 53% off.  When N = 100, the left-endpoint approximation and

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
