    Integration problems

    I really dont understand this Q!

    For part i) I got an answer of 0.535645, however the answer in the back of the book is 0.535644??

    For part ii) i got 1 + 5x^2 + 10x^4 + 10x^6 + 5x^8 + x^10 , im pretty sure thats right however for the next bit i got an answer of 0.5826, but the actual answer is 0.527147??

    I do not understand iii) and iv) at all, please help!

    Thank you so much

    Looks like you got (i) correct.

    The answer to (ii) is found by calculating

    \int_0^{0.4} (1+5x^2+10x^4)\,dx=\left[x+\frac{5}{3}x^2+2x^5\right]_0^{0.4}=0.4+\frac{5}{3}\cdot 0.064+2\cdot 0.01024.

    For (iii), we look at the graph and decide whether the total area of trapezoids drawn with endpoints on the curve is greater or less than the actual area under the curve. Also, we may note that

    1+5x^2+10x^4\le 1+5x^2+10x^4+10x^6+5x^8+x^{10}.

    For (iv), I think you are supposed to name a few other rules besides the trapezoidal rule.

    If your answer is only 0.000001 off, then you should be fine.
