Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how are you supposed to divide 140 in to three sub intervals? got me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i guess each has length of \(46\tfrac{2}{3}\) and you take the midpoint so first sample point would be at \(23\tfrac{1}{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you just ignore the 140 I guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no one third of 120 is 40

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh crap I thought it was four intervals

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one interval would be \([0,40]\) next would be \([40,80]\) and last would be \([80,120]\) you would sample as \(20,60,100\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be 40[ f(20)+f(60)+f(100)] ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that should do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@satellite73 but it talks about rectangles so for each interval do I just do the X*y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes it is just rectangles, base times height

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is the last 140,8 gone or something?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know, but this is what I did using base times height

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i see what you did wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the base if 40, the height is 2, 4 and 8 respectively

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you wrote \(40[ f(20)+f(60)+f(100)]\)

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is correct, and \(f(20)=2,f(60)=4, f(100)=8\) so it should be \[40(2+4+8)\]
