I am not getting the correct answer for this so I'm sure I'm messing up some arithmetic or missing a step. Any help would be appreciated.
Use Simpson's Approx. for:
Plugging in 0,.1,.2,...,.9,1 into the function I get
This equals roughly 1.11585
However, when I evaluate the integral
I end up with 1.14915. Where is the discrepancy coming from? Thanks for the help!
Tan(0)/0 should be 0 no? Or, at the very least, undefined.
I should add that I'm using a calculator and Wolframalpha alpha to evaluate. Is this just a reasonable amount of error from the approximation?
