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

okay. We know the formula for Delta X er change in Axis B minus a divide by an Given the limit that the problems given us, we know Delta axes pi over four on and a zero. Therefore, if Delta Axe is be minus a over and then it's and demonized over an is equivalent to pi over four end, then we actually condone drive a value for B we get B is equivalent to pi over four. Therefore, what we know is that we end up with the same limit that if the integral from zero to fought for of tan of axe DX mean the sum represents the area under the curve. Reichel's 10 of X and above the X axis in the interval, x from 0 to 4 pi over four.
