What is the approximate area of the strip with respect to x?
TuringTest
  • TuringTest
the Riemann sum is often written\[\sum_{i=0}^nf(x_i^*)\Delta x;~~~\Delta x=(\frac{b-a}n);~~~x_i^*=a+i\Delta x\]

yeah I know I'm having trouble coming up with a formula for the area of the strip

the strip is a trapezoid, so you can use the formula\[A=(\frac{b_1+b_2}2)h\]in this case, the height of the trapezoid is \(\Delta x\) and the bases are the value of the function at two different points.

b_1 and B_2 has to be something (a-?) but i dont know how to find it

how would you approximate area of the strip with respect to x?
TuringTest
  • TuringTest
the way your picture is, \(x\) seems to be going from right to left, and \(x+\Delta x\) the left side, so the bases are \(f(x)\) and \(f(x+\Delta x)\)

\[Delta(x) \times(x/2)\]
TuringTest
  • TuringTest
it will be\[\Delta x[\frac{f(x)+f(x+\Delta x)}2]\]so you need to figure our what f(x) is. Remember that this is a line; you can fine its slope.
