math question 2 very urgent !
posted by Carla on .
Given f (x) = √(7 + x) + 4 . Use the rectangle method to approximate the area on the interval [0, 8] using 4
rectangles. (Assume the graph goes through the midpoint of each rectangle.)

(sigma)M = (ba) f((a+b)/2)
width:
(ba)=20
(ba)=42
(ba)=64
(ba)=86 =2
find the height:
f((a+b)/2)
(e.g. ([√(7 + a) + 4] + [√(7 + b) + 4])/2)
take the sum of "rectangles" (i.e. product of width and height)
