(a) LEFT
For left hand or right hand rule, every extra digit requires 10 times of work. 4 digit needs 2 second. From 4 to 12, it has 8 digits. 2 * 10^(8) seconds / 60 /60 /24 /365 = 6.3 years
(b) MID
For midpoint rule, every 2 digit requires 10 times of work.
2 * 10^(8/2) /60 /60 = 5.6 hours
(c) SIMP
Each 4 digits requires 10 times of work.
2 * 10^(8/4) /60 = 3.3 mins.
