# Using the Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson’s Rule In Exercises 1-10, use the Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson’s Rule to approximate the value of the definite integral for the indicated value of n. Compare these results with the exact value of the definite integral. Round your answers to four decimal places. See Examples 1 and 2. ∫ 0 2 x x 2 + 1 d x , n = 4

To determine

To calculate: The value of the integral 02xx2+1dx,n=4 by using the Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson’s Rule to approximate the value of the definite integral for the indicated value of n. Compare these results with the exact value of definite integral. Round your answers to four decimal places.

Explanation

Given Information:

The definite integral is 02xx2+1dx,n=4.

Formula used:

1. Trapezoidal Rule:

If a function f is continuous on [a,b], then

abf(x)dx(ba2n)[f(x0)+2f(x0)+...+2f(xn1)+f(xn)]

2. Simpson’s Rule:

If f is continuous on [a,b] and n is an even integer, then

abf(x)dx(ba3n)[f(x0)+4f(x1)+2f(x2)+4f(x3)++4f(xn1)+f(xn)]

Calculation:

Calculation to get exact value:

Consider the definite integral 02xx2+1dx,n=4.

02xx2+1dx=13[(x2+1)32]02=13(22+1)32

Simplify as:

02xx2+1dx=(4+1)323=5323=3.3934

Therefore, exact value: 02xx2+1dx3.3934.

Calculation by Trapezoidal Rule:

Consider the definite integral 02xx2+1dx,n=4.

When n=4, the width of each subinterval is,

204=12

And the end points of subintervals are,

For x0,

x0=0

For x1,

x1=12

For x2,

x2=12+12=1

For x3,

x3=1+12=32

For x4,

x4=32+12=
