# Using the Midpoint Rule In Exercises 7-14, use the Midpoint Rule with n = 5 to approximate the area of the region bounded by the graph of f and the x-axis over the interval. Sketch the region. See Examples 2 and 3. Function Interval f ( x ) = 6 1 + e − x                     [ 1 , 4 ]

To determine

To calculate: the area bounded by the function f(x)=6ex+1 in the interval [1,4] by mid-point rule. Also plot the graph between function f and x-axis.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x)=6ex+1 area of this function is calculated on the interval [1,4] and the provided interval will be divided into 5 sub interval as n=5.

Formula used:

The approximate area of any definite integral baf(x)dx by the use of midpoint rule is calculated by the use of following steps.

Step1: firstly, divide the provided interval of the function into n sub intervals by the use of formula;

Δx=ban where [a,b] are the intervals and n is the subinterval value and Δx is the width.

Step2: by the use of above calculated value of subinterval find the midpoint of each sub interval.

Step3: final step is to obtain approximate area by calculating function f at each mid-point from the use of formula;

abf(x)dx=ban[f(x1)+f(x2)+f(x3)++f(xn)]

Calculation:

Consider the provided function;

Now, put n equal to 5, a=5 and b=5 in the above mid-point rule as;

Δx=415=35

Width Δx of the provided interval will be 35.

So, the interval [1,4] with width 35 will be divided into 5 subintervals as;

[1,1.6],[1.6,2.2],[2.2,2.8],[2.8,3.4] and [3.4,4]

Now, the value of midpoint of each sub interval is calculated as;

[x1,x2]=x1+x22 where x1,x2 are the upper value and lower value of the subintervals

So, for subinterval [1,1.6] mid-point is ;

[1,1.6]=1+1.62=1.3

Similarly for subinterval [1.6,2.2] mid-point is ;

[1.6,2.2]=1.66+2.22=1.9

For subinterval [2.2,2.8] mid-point is ;

[2
