I cant seem to get this problem:
Calculate
for
over
.
for my delta x I got 3pi/16, then I tried to get my height points which I got to be (3pi/4, 15pi/16, 9pi/8, 21pi/ 16). Then I plugged each point into f(x) added them together and then multiplied by delta x. But its still not right can someone help me figure out what Im doing wrong?
Thanks!

The first and biggest mistake you're doing is not defining for us whadda heck do you mean by \(\displaystyle L_4\) , "height points|(??), "delta x"... (Headbang)

I could try to guess that you are talking about a Riemann sum using 4 sub-intervals, using the left end point for the function value, but it would be really nice if you would tell us that!

What you say you are doing is correct so any error must be in the execution- show us exactly what you did.

Riemann Sums

Yes using Riemann Sums Im so sorry. :(
