    lim as n approaches 0 * if that doesnt look clear. looking for a step by step explanation.

    is it like this \[\huge \lim_{n \rightarrow 0} \sum_{i=1}^{n}[2(1+\frac{2i}{n})-5]\frac{2}{n}\]

    we want to express the sum as\[\huge \sum_{i=1}^{n}f(c_i)\Delta x\] where \[\Delta x=\frac{2}{n}\]

    we also wanna find c_i as the endpoint of each interval, \[\huge c_i=\frac{2}{n}i\]this means that we have \[\huge \sum_{i=1}^{n}[2(1+c_i)-5]\Delta x\]

    hence you can steal your function easily from that f(x)=

    so we should write\[\frac{1}{3}\sum_{i=1}^{n}[2(3-2\frac{3i}{n})-5]2\frac{3}{n}\]

    left side is stated as this correct? \[\lim_{n\to0}~\sum_a^b~f(a+i\frac{b-a}{n})\frac{b-a}{n}~;~i=0,1,2,...,b-\frac{b-a}{n}\]

    hmm interval (-1,2) then b-a= 2--1 = 3 so there seems to be a little confusion unless we are spose to factor within the given summation fo accomodate that
