Let f(x)= (x-(1/2))^2 + 3, 0<= x <= 1. If the interval [0,1] is partitioned into 4 subintervals of equal length, then what is the value of the smallest Riemann sum for f(x) and this partition?

I wound up getting for the first interval,

for the second interval,

for the third interval, and

for the fourth interval,

I'm not sure what to do from there? - Mar 11th 2008, 12:32 PMJhevon
