Left-hand sums and right-hand sums are special cases of Riemann Sums where each sum is found using any x-value in the subintervals to determine the heights of the rectangle. Definition: For a continuous function f the definite integral of f on the interval [a, b] is where a and b are the lower and upper limits of integration, respectively. Note: Geometrically, the definite integral represents the cumulative sum of the signed areas between the graph of f (x) and the x-axis from x = a to x = b, where areas above the x-axis are counted positively and areas below the x-axis are counted negatively. Example 2: Calculate the following given f (x) below b a) 0 f (x) dx c b) 0 f (x) dx d c) a f (x) dx 8 c Kendra Kilmer April 2, 2009 Properties of Definite Integrals a 1. a b f (x) dx = f (x) dx = a b 2. 3. a b k f (x) dx = [ f (x) g(x)] dx = a b 4. 5. a f (x) dx = 4 4 Example 4: Given 1 4 x dx = 7.5, 1 x2 dx = 21, and 4 5 x2 dx = 61/3, calculate the following: a) 1 (4x2 - 9x) dx 5 b) 1 (-4x2 ) dx Section 6.4 Homework Problems: 1,3,5,17,21,25,29,33,37 and supplemental problems 9 ...
