    Really need help

    1.I need to evaluate (x+x^3)dx with limits 2 and 1

    ii. estimate the above integral using the trapezium rule using 5 strips

    2.i need to use the trapezium rule with 4 strips to estimate root(1+x^2) with limits of 4 and 0

    3.the gradient function is dy/dx= 1/x^2 - xrootx

    4.I need to find the stationary point of the graph y= (1/x) + (1/x^2) - (1/x^3) and need to determine their natures of each

    I need help with these 4 please. Dont think you have to answer them all, but i do need all the answers and working out Thanks

    Need replies ASAP

    You want to evaluate the integral x+x^3 between 1 to 2?

    ii. estimate the above integral using the trapezium rule using 5 strips

    2.i need to use the trapezium rule with 4 strips to estimate root(1+x^2) with limits of 4 and 0


    3.the gradient function is dy/dx= 1/x^2 - xrootx what do you want to do here? Evaluate the integral with the trapezium method?

    4.I need to find the stationary point of the graph y= (1/x) + (1/x^2) - (1/x^3) and need to determine their natures of each
    The stationary point means: The point where the derivative is zero?

    Thats just what im given in the question. its not all the trapezium rule

    would appreciate it if you could write a step by step working out of the question. the question i have written down is exactly what it says on the paper
