Let $ A $ be the area under the graph of an increasing continuous function $ f $ from $ a $ to $ b $, and let $ L_n $ and $ R_n $ be the approximations to $ A $ with $ n $ subintervals using left and right endpoints, respectively.

(a) How are $ A $, $ L_n $, and $ R_n $ related?

(b) Show that $$ R_n - L_n = \frac{b - a}{n} [f(b) - f(a)] $$

Then draw a diagram to illustrate this equation by showing that the $ n $ rectangles representing $ R_n - L_n $ can be reassembled to form a single rectangle whose area is the right side of the equation.

(c) Deduce that $$ R_n - A < \frac{b - a}{n} [f(b) - f(a)] $$

So try to figure out this inter crow. And I mean, we right out of general formula for this specific proper and are a zero piece one and the F of axis x Q. So this gives us one of run some eye from one, two and eight zero piece one. So this high over on Q so high to over on cue and by the formula given impart, be so this. So this will be answered ofthe party and by this given form last. We know that this you can compare the leave me like this We fact at once or over a cube. So we are one over on to the fourth and we some over I too, from one toe on which it's given by this formula. So is for on square on plus one square. And this limits one over for people's we have for Lamia enumeration denominator. They have the same decree degree course for so the limit is just a racial off coefficient of the highest order term in this case will be one over four
