\[\int\limits_{3}^{0} (2x^2 + x +3) dx\] \[\Delta x = 3/n\] \[x_{k} = 3 + 3k/n\] \[f(x_k) = (3+ 3k/n)^2  (3 + 3k/n) +1\]

im not sure where to go from there

I 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

then \[f(c _{k}) = 2*k^2 *\Delta x ^3 + k*\Delta x^2 + 3 \Delta x\]

Algebraic!Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
and \[S _{n} = 2 \Delta x ^3 \sum_{}^{} k^2 + \Delta x^2 \sum_{}^{} k +3 \Delta x\]

so if be better of making the original equation negative then using that formula to find the equation

a 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

you got it from here?

yea i think so i think what confuses me the most is 3+(3k/n)

do what I did before you sub.s in 'delta x = b/n'

CalcDerp102Best 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

start at x=0... move delta x to the right... what's the height of the rectangle you'd draw there?

height 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

Algebraic!Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
next 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
 one year ago

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

2*k^2*(delta x)^3 + k*(delta x)^2 +3*delta x

summing from k=1 to n

Algebraic!Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
that's the sum I wrote above

CalcDerp102Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh alright, thanks i appreciate the help!

Algebraic!Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
does that make sense?

CalcDerp102Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yeah it does, im trying to work through the problem. ill have an answer soon enough though

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

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

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

CalcDerp102Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh ok, thats makes more sense now

CalcDerp102Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Its either 0 or 6 i think 0 because n = 3, am i correct?
 one year ago

Algebraic!Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
n 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

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