    Simpson's Rule with a table of information

    Use Simpson's rule t and all the data in the following table to estimate the value of the integral

    \displaystyle \int_{-16}^{-10}y\,dx

    x -16 -15 -14 -13 -12 -11 -10
    y 8 8 -9 -9 0 4 4


    I can see a pattern of x decreasing by 1 but the y is throwing me off.

    Write down Simpson's Rule for 6 strips of width 1. The y's are simply the 7 function values f(0),f(1),\dots f(6).
