I need help finding the trapezoid error estimate of: integral(upper bound 5)(lower bound 1) 1/x^2 *dx; n=4
Thanks.
I know that the formula is M(b-a)^3/12n^2 but I am having trouble understanding how to find M.

I assume that this is an upper bound estimate of the error where M is the maximum value of $\displaystyle f''(x)$ over the interval [1, 5] and $\displaystyle f(x) = \frac{1}{x^2}$ ....
