    Simpsons rule error term

    in our notes we have - (b-a/180)*h^4*f('''')

    How do you calcualte 180

    where does it come from?

    On wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simpson's_rule go to the section simpsons composite rule and look at the error its /180 , how do they get this 180???
