Using a left Riemann sum with 5 subintervals estimate the total amount of oil consumed in that time interval. Give your answer correct to 1 decimal place.

x 0 2 5 7 11 12
f(x) 7 4.0 3.2 2.2 1.6 1

6. The graph of f ′ (x), the derivative of f(x), is continuous for all x and consists of five line segments as shown below. Given f (5) = 10, find the absolute minimum value of f (x) over the interval [0, 5].

graph of line segments increasing from x equals negative 4 to x equals negative 3, decreasing from x equals negative 3 to x equals 0, increasing from x equals 0 to x equals 3, constant from x equals 2 to x equals 4 and decreases from x equals 4 to x equals 5. x intercepts at x equals negative 4, x equals 0, x equals 5

  2. #1.
    A false, if f" is ever positive
    B true
    C false. Consider y = -(x+3)^3

    #2.
    Surely by now you know how to sum up these areas! You know the area of a trapezoid is (B+b)/2 * h, so
    (5+9)/2 * (7-3) + (9+14)/2 * (10-7) + (14+18)/2 * (12-10) + (18+24)/2 * (13-12) = 231/2

    #3. f'(9) is approximately the slope of the line joining (8,f(8)) and (10,f(10)),
    which is (16-10)/(10-8) = 3

    #4. See your previous post. You still haven't made it clear. Ditch the words and write it as math.

    #5. Come on. I've done several Riemann sums for you. The area of a rectangle is width * height! So just add 'em up.

    #6. Cannot login to your course web site.
    So, I can't see your graph. But it appears that f'(x) is never negative, which means that f(x) is increasing over the whole interval [-4,5]. So clearly f(x) is a minimum at x=4, where the area below the graph is zero.

    It would have been easier if you had just given the coordinates of all the vertices of the graph of f'(x). Lots less typing, and no confusion.
