# 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. ∫ 3 4 1 x − 2 d x , n = 4

To determine

To calculate: The value of the integral 341x2dx,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 341x2dx,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 341x2dx,n=4.

341x2dx=ln|x2|]34=ln2ln1

Simplify as:

341x2dx=ln20.6931

Therefore, the exact value is 341x2dx0.6931.

Calculation by Trapezoidal Rule:

Consider the definite integral 341x2dx,n=4.

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

434=14

And the end points of subintervals are,

For x0,

x0=3

For x1,

x1=3+14=134

For x2,

x2=134+14=144=72

For x3,

x3=72+14=154

For x4,

x4=154+1<
