A cable that weighs 6 lb/ft is used to lift 800 lb of coal up a mine shaft 450 ft deep. Find the work done.

A.) Show how to approximate the required work by a Riemann sum. (Let *x* be the distance in feet below the top of the shaft. Enter *x*_{i}* as *x*_{i}.)

B.) Express the work as an integral.

C.)Evaluate the integral.
