Solutions

Chapter 5.2, Problem 53E
To determine

To express the limit as a definite integral.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 53E

The value of definite integral is limxi=1ni4n5=01x4dx=15 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The equation is

  limxi=1ni4n5

Formula used:

  abf(x)dx=limxΔxi=1nf(a+iΔx)where Δx=ban

The given expression can be express as

  limxi=1ni4n5=limxi=1ni4n4(1n)=limx(1n)i=1n(0+1ni)4

Compare the above equation to the formula,

  Δx=1n,a=0 and f(x)=x4

Find b ,

  Δx=ban1n=b0nb=1

Therefore,

  limxi=1ni4n5=01x4dx=15

Hence,

The value of definite integralis limxi=1ni4n5=01x4dx=15 .
