Question

Approximate the area under the curve over the specified interval by using the indicated number of subintervals (or rectangles) and evaluating the function at the right-hand endpoints of the subintervals. (See Example 1.)

f(x) = 9 − x2 from x = 1 to x = 3; 4 subintervals

Split up [1, 3] into 4 subintervals:

[1, 3/2], [3/2, 2], [2, 5/2], [5/2, 3]

each with length (3 – 1)/2 = 1/2.

The right endpoints are {3/2, 2, 5/2, 3}, which we can index by the sequence

with .

Evaluating the function at the right endpoints gives the sampling points , {27/4, 5, 11/4, 0}.

Then the area is approximated by
