The table gives the values of a function obtained from an
experiment. Use them to estimate ∫93f(x) dx  using three
equal subintervals with (a) right endpoints, (b) left end -
points, and (c) midpoints. If the function is known to be an
increasing function, can you say whether your estimates are
less than or greater than the exact value of the integral?
