The trapezium rule
I am revising the trapezium rule and I can't continue because I am stuck on an exercise question.
I am asked to find the approximation for this value using the trapezium rule between x = 1 and x = 4
When I work it out I keep getting a negative value. What would I do here.
The exact value is
I would hope you get negative values! What's your h?
I am asked to use 6 strips.
So h = 0.5
I have been told that the answer cannot result in a negative value.
As Ackbeet just told you the answer is a negative number.
