I need to compare and contrast Weddle's Rule and Simpson's rule and outline a distinguishing difference between them. I understand Simpson's Rule but I am finding it difficult to obtain clear information about Weddle's rule.

To solution is in the idea that Simpson's rule requires an even number of intervals and uses parabola capped trapezoids created by three points. Weddle's rule works accurately for more than 7 and odd numbers of intervals. Good luck in indentifying the derivation of the weird coefficients in the general formula.
