6.3 Riemann Sums How does one approximate the area between a graph and the x-axis? A Riemann Sum can be used to approximate area under a graph n R n = Σ f(x i ) * (Δx) on [a,b] i = 1 for f(x i ) > 0 Where Δx = b-a n for a given number, n, of partitions. 1. For f(x) =10 - x 2 Calculate the area between the graph and the x axis on the interval [-1,2] given the graph. (see Maple problem) For f(x) =8 - x 2
