Find the area between each curve and the xaxis for the given interval.
1)y = x^4 + 5 from x = 0 and x = 5
2)y = 3x^2 + 5x  1 from x = 1 to x = 4
3)y = 4x  x^3 from x = 0 to x = 2

These are pretty easy with calculus, however, I assume you have not had integral calculus. So what have you had? Simpson's rule can be used, as well as a number of other numerical integration algorithms.
