# Estimating Errors Using Technology In Exercises 33 and 34, use a computer algebra system and the error formulas to find n such that the error in the approximation of the definite integral is less than or equal to 0.00001 using (a) the Trapezoidal Rule and (b) Simpson’s Rule. ∫ 0 1 tan x 2   d x

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The value of n for which the error in the approximation of the definite integral for the function f(x)=tan(x2) is less than or equal to 0.00001 using Trapezoidal rule using computer algebra system.

Explanation

Given:

f(x)=tan(x2)

Formula used:

The error (E) in approximating âˆ«abf(x)dx using the Trapezoidal rule is,

|E|â‰¤(bâˆ’a)312n2[max|fâ€²â€²(x)|],Â aâ‰¤xâ‰¤b

Calculation:

To differentiate the provided function with the help of maple use the following command,

>diff(sec2(x),[x\$2])

Thus the output is:

4sec(x)2tan(x)2+2sec

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The value of n for which the error in the approximation of the definite integral for the function f(x)=tan(x2) is less than or equal to 0.00001 using Simpson’s rule using computer algebra system.
