    what i understand is that we have to integrate between 2 and 4

    i think this question is saying estimate the area using rectangles, on a proper sheet

    so first of all we need to divid the interval

    what i mean by that is to divide the interval into 4 sub inscribed intervals

    let it be 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 and 4 because they 2 and 4 are included in the interval using square brackets notation...

    I am sorry that the equation editor is not functioning propely for me, probably due to browser issue, or technical problem with open study...

    A = 0.5[f(2)+f(2.5)+f(3)+f(3.5)+f(4)

    so what is f(2)=?

    now before that the reason why i divided the intervals by a step of 0.5 is due to the fact that dx = (4-2)/4=0.5, hence 2, 2.5...etc

    step two divide the interval [2, 4] into [2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4]

    step three find : A = 0.5[f(2)+f(2.5)+f(3)+f(3.5)+f(4)]

    f(2) =(2)^2+1=5, f(2.5)=(2.5)^2+1= 7.25. f(3)=(3)^2+1=10, f(3.5)=(3.5)^2+1=13.25, and f(4) = (4)^2+1=17
