n partitions imply a finite number...
if you're going to find the EXACT area, you'll need an infinite number of very tiny partitions...
ie, let \(\large n\rightarrow \infty \)

I ended up with this:
\[A = (\frac{ 1 }{ n } + \frac{ 2(1) }{ n ^{2} } + \frac{ 1^{2} }{ n ^{3} }) + (\frac{ 1 }{ n } + \frac{ 2(2) }{ n ^{2} } + \frac{ 2^{2} }{ n ^{3} }) + (\frac{ 1 }{ n } + \frac{ 2(3) }{ n ^{2} } + \frac{ 3^{2} }{ n ^{3} }) + (\frac{ 1 }{ n } + \frac{ 2(4) }{ n ^{2} } + \frac{ 4^{2} }{ n ^{3} }) +...+ (\frac{ 1 }{ n } + \frac{ 2(n) }{ n ^{2} } + \frac{ n^{2} }{ n ^{3} })\]
Simplified:
\[A = \frac{ n }{ n } + \frac{ 2 }{ n ^{2} }(1+2+3+4+...+n)+\frac{ 1 }{ n ^{3} }(1^{2}+2^{2}+3^{2}+4^{2}+...+n ^{2})\]
Is that correct? I know I have to take the limit of it eventually, but I know it simplifies more. That's what I'm unsure about.

Okay. I understand that.

- anonymous

\(\large f(1+\frac{i-1}{n})=(1+\frac{i-1}{n})^2 \)
so the area of each rectangle is:
\(\large A_i=(1+\frac{i-1}{n})^2 \cdot \frac{1}{n} \)

- anonymous

That matches with what I have. I'm just not sure if what I did next was right. Would you simplify that, or expand it (and distribute)?

- anonymous

yeah... sorry, i'm more visual so i had to draw that picture for me to see what i was doing...

- anonymous

yes.. expand that an add up all the \(\large A_i \) from 1 to n then take the limit as n approaches infinity...

- anonymous

yuck... looks like you'll have to expand \(\large (n + i - 1)^2 \)

- anonymous

lol... with a little help...

- anonymous

whoa.. wait a minute... wolfram thinks i is the imaginary unit....

- anonymous

this is better... the index "i" is the "x" here: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=expand+%28n%2Bx-1%29%5E2

\(\large \lim_{n\rightarrow \infty} \sum_{i=1}^{n}A_i \)

- anonymous

I sort of understand what you're doing. The example in my textbook (Calculus 7E, Stewart) uses the formula for the sum of squares in simplifying this when taking my approach:
\[A= \frac{ n }{ n } + \frac{ 2 }{ n ^{2} } (1+2+3+4+...+n) + \frac{ 1 }{ n ^{3} }(1^{2}+2^{2}+3^{2}+4^{2}+...+n ^{2})\]
Where.. \[(1^{2}+2^{2}+3^{2}+4^{2}+...+n ^{2}) = \frac{ n(n+1)(2n+1) }{ 6 }\]
Is there a way to simplify this? \[(1+2+3+4+...+n)\]

- anonymous

yes... that's n(n+1)/2

- anonymous

How did you do that? My textbook doesn't explain anything.

- anonymous

let the sum from 1 to n be x, and also, write it backwards, it's still x...
|dw:1353407364634:dw|

- anonymous

now add theses two...|dw:1353407524440:dw|

- anonymous

so x, the sum, is n(n+1)/2.....

Stewart Calculus 7E ??? is this for AP calculus?

- anonymous

I'm taking Calculus I at a community college and my professor is supposedly the toughest calc instructor on campus. We can't use our calculators on any of the tests, there's no margin for error with him, and we have to memorize identities, theorems, and definitions.

- anonymous

sorry man....
I have to take off...
btw... that's what i used for AP calculus last year.... got a 1... :(

- anonymous

No worries. So far, the whole class is hanging by a thread grade-wise. Again, I really do appreciate the help! You're a lifesaver! Thank you ByteMe!

yw....:)
