The definite integral of a function computes the area under the graph of its curve, allowing us to calculate areas and volumes that are not easily done using geometry alone.
If Morgan uses 2 subintervals, and Pat uses 4 subintervals, whose approximation is closer to the true value of the integral?
Ferb knows that \[\int_0^8 x dx = 32,\] and is interested in how close a right-hand Reimann sum approximation to the integral can be.
Based on his work so far, if Ferb uses 32 subintervals, what will his approximation be?
|Number of subintervals||Approximation||Error|
Which of the following is true of \(A\) and \(B?\)
