Problem 5 Medium Difficulty

Use (a) the Midpoint Rule and (b) Simpson's Rule to approximate the given integral with the specified value of $ n $. (Round your answers to six decimal places.) Compare your results to the actual value to determine the error in each approximation.

$ \displaystyle \int_0^2 \frac{x}{1 + x^2}\ dx $ , $ n = 10 $


a.$M_{10} \approx 0.806598,$ error $\approx-0.001879$
b.$M_{10} \approx 0.806598, \quad$ error $\approx-0.000060$

Okay. Problem. Fire. To solve this problem you only need is a calculator. First you need to catch the eye is equal to 0.80 or Simon one. It's adjusting to grow. And you want to die. You on. You want to calculate Am having people to Ah, 3.1 US 7.3. Right. And I started that two at 1.9. Right? He's the last off interval ways to derided by 10. Yeah, this is a And what about the ass? Us? I copy that seems a rule. So their tax is 0.2, right? Because it is to minus zero, divided by 10 Axiron is zero X one is, uh, 2.0 point two. Right ni is one point eight Just more by all the saints to better. And you will get the ass after a calculation. Um, is equal to year old 0.80 sakes by NYU zero 65 Aye. And as is he go to for 779 And what about the estimate? And what about the era? Era is I minus, um that I am And it was yes, just I meant it's ours and you get the correct answer
