Unformatted text preview: Robert Crescenzi Professor Horntrop Math 112010 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 Leftendpoint 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 leftendpoint approximation and rightendpoint 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 leftendpoint approximation is approx. 53% and the right endpoint approximation is approx. 53% off. When N = 100, the leftendpoint approximation and endpoint approximation is approx....
