Trapezoidal rule:
So if there is six elements with height
First element:
Secon element:
Other:
So the area:
the 3rd time needing help today...
Problem:
Use the trapezoidal rule to approximate the
on the interval using 6 trapezoids of equal height.
I believe the height for each trapezoid will be 2 because 8-(-4) is 12, 12/6=2
I never get the graphing part...
I thought I could get the two main bases of the big trapezoid by plugging in -4 and 8 into the integrand
I got -5 and 115
tried to graph it, didn't go well
are
the other pts that should be plugged into the integrand to find the heights of the rectangles that will be connected to make trapezoids, or directly find the bases of each trapezoid?
