The left endpoints are .
Set up the Riemann sum of f(x)=x^2-2 by partitioning the interval [1,5] into equal subintervals and use the left endpoint of each subinterval for x.
I know the riemann sum in it's general form is
n
Σ f(ci)delta-xi and delta-x = (b-a)/n
i=1
But I have trouble with figuring out the subintervals and using the left endpoint. How do I come up with the left endpoint Ci?
