Question #2 (Medium): Approximating the Integral
Recall the approximate expressions for the five methods covered in the unit. Notice that no
matter which approximating method is used.
Approximate the integral (answers rounded to 6 decimal places) with the specified value of using:
1) Midpoint Rule
2) Trapezoidal Rule
3) Simpson’s Rule
Given and interval of[ ], then .
1) Midpoint Rule: ∑ [ (̅) ] [ (̅̅̅ (̅̅̅ (̅̅̅ (̅̅̅]
The intervals are:[ ] [ ] [
