MIDTERM 2 — MATH 141 — FALL 2002 — BOYLE Use exactly ONE answer sheet per question (use the back of the sheet if needed). Put your name, your TA’s name and the question number on EACH page. Put a BOX around the Fnal answer to a question. No books, no notes, no calculators. Before handing in your test: on your Frst answer sheet, please copy the pledge, and sign. ———————————————————————————————————– 1 . Compute the following integrals.

Unformatted text preview: f . What kinds of local approximations to f are used to build up the Left Endpoint and Simpsons Rules? (c) (5 points) Let S n denote the Simpsons Rule estimate for a given R b a f ( x ) dx and let E n = | S n-R b a f ( x ) dx | . Suppose that the error estimate for Simpsons Rule shows E 10 1. How big should n be to guarantee E n . 000 000 01 ? 4 . (15 points) or each integral below, give the appropriate description: ;- ; DNE (does not exist); or CONVERGES (i.e. the improper integral is well deFned and converges to a Fnite real numberyou dont have to compute it).
