# Using the Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson’s Rule In Exercises 11-20, approximate the value of the definite integral using (a) the Trapezoidal Rule and (b) Simpson's Rule for the indicated value of n. Round your answers to three decimal places. See Examples 1 and 2. ∫ 0 1 e x 2 d x , n = 8

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The value of the integral 01ex2dx,n=8 by using the Trapezoidal Rule and to approximate the value of the definite integral for the indicated value of n. Round your answers to four decimal places.

Explanation

Given Information:

The definite integral is 01ex2dx,n=8.

Formula used:

Trapezoidal Rule:

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

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

Calculation:

Calculation by Trapezoidal Rule:

Consider the definite integral 01ex2dx,n=8.

When n=8, the width of each subinterval is

108=18

And the end points of subintervals are

x0=0x1=18x2=14x3=38

And,

x4=12x5=58x6=34x7=78

And,

x8=1

The graph of the function is,

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The value of the integral 01ex2dx,n=8 by using the Simpson’s Rule and to approximate the value of the definite integral for the indicated value of n. Round your answers to four decimal places.
