# Thread: Simpson's Rule

1. ## 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.

### how large should n be to guarantee that the simpson's rule approximation to 1 5ex2 dx 0 is accurate to within 0.0001?
