Is the simpson's rule always more accurate than the midpoint rule and trapezoidal rule?

Not always; it is possible that the midpoint and/or trapezoidal rule determine exact values.

1. Some functions values for a function f are given below.

x 0 0.5 1.0

f(x) 3 4 11

What is the value of the estimate S1 to

1

çf (x) dx

0

(a) 6 b) 5 c) 15/2 (d) 22/3

2. Some functions values for a function f are given below.

x 0 0.5 1.0 1.5 2.0

f(x) 3 4 11 20 30

With these values only which of the following estimates to

2

çf (x) dx is it possible to

0

calculate?

(a) S1 and S2 only (b) S1 only

(c) S1, S2 and S4 (d) It isnft possible to calculate any

Simpsonfs Rule estimates.

3. Some functions values for a function f are given below.

x 11 13 15

f(x) 0.5 a 1.5

If the value of the S1 approximation to

15

ç f (x) dx is 4, what is the value of

11

a?

(a) 1.5 (b) 1.75

(c) 1.25 (d) 1
