Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All you do is just plug the information given into Simpson's rule ( http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcII/ApproximatingDefIntegrals_files/eq0026MP.gif) a=1, b=2, n=10, thus change in x:[(ba)/n]=1/10, more info at http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcII/ApproximatingDefIntegrals.aspx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\Delta x = (21)/n = 1/10.\] so do EACH one of the subdivisions separately.... f(a) = ln(1)^(3/2) = (3/2)*ln(1) f(a+\[\Delta x\] = ln(1+1/10)^(3/2) = (3/2)*ln(1.1) and so on... you got the busy work, and then sum all 10 divisions up. or you can cheat and use the calculator Flyinpigg linked.
