Basic Caluculus

f(x)=2x^3-x^2+1 [1,4]=interval

Using the limit process, (once with right endpts, and the other with left entdpts.) find the area under the curve and above the x-axis on the given interval


i got the area to be 107.5 for right endpts. (not sure if its right) but what about the left endpt??

  1. You are evidently approximating the integral with rectangles . However except for saying you want it done both with left and right endpoints you do not say how many rectangles to use. If you use enough of them you will get the exact answer, which Dr. WLS gave you last night.

    A region is bounded by the function y=2x^2+3 and the x-axis over the interval(0,2). Sketch the graph of the bounded region. Use the limit process to find the area of the bounded region. Explain the step in this limit process.

    Plz help me out with a solution... f(x) = sin(1/x) when x is not = to 0 and f(0) = 0 Thanx in advance... A function is continuous if Limit of y-->x of f(y) equals f(x) for every x. In this case you have t see if this is the case
