AP Calculus AB Part 2

The Riemann sum, the limit as the maximum of delta x sub i goes to infinity of the summation from i equals 1 to n of f of the quantity x star sub i times delta x sub i , is equivalent to the limit as n goes to infinity of the summation from i equals 1 to n of f of the quantity a plus i times delta x, times delta x with delta x equals the quotient of the quantity b minus a and n .

Write the integral that produces the same value as the limit as n goes to infinity of the summation from i equals 1 to n of the product of the quantity 1 plus 3 times i over n and 3 over n . (4 points)

  1. All those words! It appears you have

    ∑ (1 + 3i/n)(3/n)

    This seems to be a right-hand sum on an interval of width 3, since it is

    ∑ (1+(3/n)i)(3/n) = ∑f(xi)∆x

    That makes me think that it is

    ∫[1,4] x dx

    If you have learned to evaluate definite integrals, you should verify that the sum and the integral are equal.
