    More midpoint...

    Use the Midpoint Rule with N = 4 to approximate the area of the region bounded by the given curves: y = 1 - 7x, x = 2 and y = (1 + x^3)!/2.


    Really unsure on what to do, especially with the exclamation mark...

    I think ths is a typo, this exclaimation mark means n! = n\times (n-1)\times (n-2)\times \dots \times 3\times 2\times 1

    It was how the problem was written...I suppose you're right, though, it doesn't make much sense. Assuming it is supposed to be a 1, where do I get started on this problem?
