    Simpson's Rule

    I looked in my book over Simpson's Rule and I still don't quite get it.

    "How large should n be to guarantee that the Simpson's Rule approximation of [integral of (e^(x)^(2)) from 0 to 1, dx] is accurate within 10^(-5)?"

    I don't really know where or how to start on this problem.
