    Calc II question..help please?

    When we estimate distances from velocity data it is sometimes necessary to use times t0, t1, t2, t3,... that are not equally spaced. We can still estimate distances using the time periods Δti = ti − ti − 1. The following table gives the velocity data for a shuttle between liftoff and the jettisoning of the solid rocket boosters.


    Event Time Velocity
    Launch 0 0
    Begin Roll Maneuver 10 180
    End Roll Maneuver 15 319
    Throttle to 89% 20 442
    Throttle to 67% 32 742
    Throttle to 104% 59 1325
    Maximum Dynamic Pressure 62 1453
    Solid Booster Rock Seperation 125 4052


    Use these data to estimate the height, h, above Earth's surface of the space shuttle, 62 seconds after liftoff. (Give the upper approximation available from the data.)

    Can someone help? I tried it out and got a very low number for an answer
