0 1 2 3 4 0 0.2 0.4 1. Consider the above plot of f ( x ) = x e - x on the interval [0 , 4]. (a) Draw in the trapezoids used to approximate the integral of f ( x ) with the midpoint rule M 4 . You should have four trapezoids, which you can number from the left as 1, 2, 3, and 4. State which trapezoids overestimate the integral and which underestimate the integral. Write down the M 4 approximation to the integral (which is the sum of the area of the four trapezoids), but do not sum the terms. (10 points) The four trapezoids are those tangent to the curve at points 1 2 , 3 2 , 5 2 , 7 2 . 1,2 overestimate, while 3, 4 underestimate the integral. M 4 = 1 2 e - 1 2 + 3 2 e - 3 2 + 5 2 e - 5 2 + 7 2 e - 7 2
(b) Evaluate the integral R N a x e - x d x. Hint: Integrate by parts. You will need this in question 2. (5 points) Integrate by parts with u = x and v 0 = e - x Z N a x e - x d x = - x e - x | N a + Z N a e - x d x = a e - a - N e - N - e - N + e - a . (0.1) (c) Find a bound for R 4 0 x e - x d x - M 4 . Note that the absolute value of ( x e - x ) 00

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• 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.
