# Use the table of values given in each of Problems 19-22 to approximate ∫ b a f ( x )   d x . Use Simpson’s Rule whenever n is even; otherwise, use the Trapezoidal Rule. Round answers to 1 decimal place.Find ∫ 2 1 f ( x )   d x . X f(x) 1 1 1.2 0.5 1.4 0.3 1.6 0.1 1.8 0.8 2.0 0.1

To determine

To calculate: The approximate value of 12f(x)dx by Simpson`s Rule if n is even or by Trapezoidal rule if n is odd the table for the values of f(x) shown below.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided function is 12f(x)dx and the table for the values of f(x) shown below.

 x f(x) 1 1 1.2 0.5 1.4 0.3 1.6 0.1 1.8 0.8 2.0 0.1

Formula used:

The length of each n subdivision for a closed interval [a,b].

h=ban

The approximate value of integral abf(x)dx for n equal subdivision of closed interval [a,b] by Trapezoidal Rule is,

abf(x)dxh2[f(x0)+2f(x1)+2f(x2)+2f(x3)++f(xn)]

The approximate value of integral abf(x)dx for n equal subdivision of closed interval [a,b] by Simpson Rule is,

abf(x)dxh3[f(x0)+4f(x1)+2f(x2)+4f(x3)+2f(x4)++f(xn)]

Where h is the length of each subdivision.

Calculation:

Consider the provided integral, 12f(x)dx
