integral (limits: a = -1 and b = 1) or (the Latex max confuse: 5e^-2x^2) using 4 strips. Length = 2 and width = 0.6 = 0.25 (1.354 + 2 * 0.338) = 0.5075 But the answer is actually 5.87...

Integral = 0.5*w*(f(-1) +2*(f(-.5)+f(0)+f(0.5))+f(1)) Integral = 0.5*0.5*(0.677+2*(3.03+5+3.03)+0.677)
Sorry it was a typo. I did actually use 0.5
