Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{3}^{0} (2x^2 + x +3) dx\] \[\Delta x = 3/n\] \[x_{k} = 3 + 3k/n\] \[f(x_k) = (3+ 3k/n)^2  (3 + 3k/n) +1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think you'd be better off using: \[\huge \int\limits_{a}^{b} f(x) dx = \int\limits_{b}^{a} f(x) dx\] at the start

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then \[f(c _{k}) = 2*k^2 *\Delta x ^3 + k*\Delta x^2 + 3 \Delta x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if be better of making the original equation negative then using that formula to find the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2a bit easier, yes... that's probably why they gave it to you in the form that they did... so you could make the easy simplification

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i think so i think what confuses me the most is 3+(3k/n)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2 * (3+ \frac{ 3k }{ n }^2) * \frac{ 3 }{ n }^3 + (3+ \frac{ 3k }{ n }) * \frac{ 3 }{ n } + 3\frac{ 3 }{ n }\] is this what im looking for or do does k = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2height is f(delta x) width is delta x area is f(delta x) * delta x which is (2*(delta x)^2 + delta x +3))*delta x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2next step: go another 'delta x' to the right height is 2*(2*delta x)^2 + 2*delta x +3 width is delta x area is (2*(2*delta x)^2 + 2*delta x +3)*delta x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the sum of areas is going to look like: (2*(k*delta x)^2 + k*delta x +3)*delta x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I didn't write the last term on the summation properly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it should be:\[\Delta x \sum_{k=1}^{n} 3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so\[S _{n} = 2(\Delta x)^3\sum_{k=1}^{n} k^2 + (\Delta x)^2 \sum_{k=1}^{n} k +\Delta x \sum_{k=1}^{n} 3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its either 0 or 6 i think 0 because n = 3, am i correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2n is the number of divisions in the partition... you find the sum above (in terms of n) ... you sub.s in b/n for delta x and then you take the limit as n>infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then use b=3 (the interval length) and finally, make the whole result negative ( due to the simplification we did at the very beginning)
