x 1 1.2 1.4 1.6 1.8
f(x) 0.8825 0.83527 0.7827 0.72615 0.66698
Use Simpson’s rule on these values to estimate . Answer to 5 decimal places.

You know Simpson's Rule right?

$S_n = \frac{\Delta x}{3} (f(x_0) + 4f(x_1) + 2f(x_2) + ..... + 4f(x_{n-1}) + f(x_n)$

You have all your information, just plug it in and work it out!

3. $S_n = \frac{\Delta x}{3} \biggl(f(x_0) + 4f(x_1) + 2f(x_2) + ..... + 4f(x_{n-1}) + f(x_n)\biggr)$

Missin a ).
So, is this named after Homer or Bart?
