Use two rectangles of equal width to estimate the area between the graph of f(x)=x+sin( πx) and the x-axis on the interval [4,8]. Evaluate the function at the mid-point of each rectangle to find each height.
a) 20
b) 24
c) 26
d) 28

1. the height of each rectangle is just the function value there.
Since the interval has length 4, each rectangle has width 2.
The interval is divided at x=4,6,8
The midpoint of each sub-interval is at x=5,7
2(f(5)+f(7)) = 2((5+sin(5π))+(7+sin(7π))) = 2(5+7) = 24
