# Finding a Riemann Sum Find the Riemann sum for f ( x ) = x 2 + 3 x over the interval [0, 8], where x 0 = 0 , x 1 = 1 , x 2 = 3 , x 3 = 7 , and x 4 = 8 and where c 1 = 1 , c 2 = 2 , c 3 = 5 , and c 4 = 8.

To determine

To calculate: The Riemann sum for f(x)=x2+3x over the interval [0,8].

Explanation

Given:

Function as, f(x)=x2+3x

x0=0,x1=1,x2=3,x3=7,Â andÂ x4=8

c1=1,c2=2,c3=5,Â andÂ c4=8

The diagram of the function is given below.

Formula used:

If ci is any point in the ith subinterval, then the sum

âˆ‘i=1nf(ci)Î”xi,Â xiâˆ’1â‰¤ciâ‰¤xi

is called a Riemann sum of f for the partition Î”.

Calculation:

Function is given as f(x)=x2+3x over the interval [0,8].

Therefore, a=0Â andÂ b=8. Also, n=4
