5.1 Integration & Anti-derivatives Area Estimate Under a Function Question #1 (Easy): Estimating the Area Under a Function Strategy All questions in this subsection ask for area estimation under the given curve using: ∑ 1) Left endpoints: 2) Right endpoints: ∑ 3) Midpoints: ∑ Then asks which estimate is lower, upper, and best estimate. - Do not assume that left endpoints always give the lower estimate and the right endpoints give the upper estimate. - Given the pattern of the curve, it can be either/or; so make sure to check. - Midpoints always give the best estimate. Sample Question Estimate the area under the given graph of using five rectangles over the interval[ ]by: 1) Using the left endpoints 2) Using the right endpoints 3) Using the midpoints 4) Which one is the lower estimate, upper estimate, and the best estimate of the true area? Solution The question specifies the number of rectangles to use, so This affects the width of each rectangles over the in
