Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'll leave it to you to verify your subintervals,, but as you can see,, the right endpoint on the \(i^{th}\) interval is going to be: \(\frac{ 3i }{ n }\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2And the summation in the definition of the definite integral is defined as: \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}f(x_i)\Delta x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In your case, you have: \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}f \left( \frac{ 3i }{ n } \right)\left( \frac{ 3 }{ n } \right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Are you with me so far? You're plugging in your right end point for "x". Hence: \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}\left[ \left( \frac{ 2i }{ n } \right)^2+1 \right]\left( \frac{ 2 }{ n } \right)\] Remember: \(f(x_i)\Delta x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The rest is easy algebra that you should be able to do. Combine like terms and distribute. I'll leave that to you to work on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now, remember that the definition is defined as: \[\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty}\sum_{i=1}^{n}f(x_i)\Delta x\] So you're going to be taking the limit of this!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In other words, you're going to have to use some of the formulas you used in algebra of summation notation to eliminate the actual summation and get a formular in terms of just "n". Because that's what you're taking the limit. You cannot have 'i' in the equation. Also, NOTE: "n" is a constant in this care. The only thing that changes in this is "i". So you can factor OUT "n".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Here are the general formulas that you SHOULD know (sidenote: these are only true if i=1) \[\sum_{n}^{i=1}c = cn\] \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}i=\frac{ n(n+1) }{ 2 }\] \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}i^2=\frac{ n(n+1)(2n+1) }{ 6 }\] \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}i^3=\left[ \frac{ n(n+1) }{ 2 } \right]^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't want to do all of yor work, especially not the algebra portion. So I'm going to ask, what did you get as your fuction? The one earlier: \(f(x_i) \Delta x\)? After combining the fraction into one single and distributing :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I hope you used \[[(\frac{ 3i }{ n })^2+1](\frac{ 3 }{ n })\] because i i mistypoed a 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think that yourr result might be a tad bit off: \(\left[\frac{ 9i^2 }{ n^2 } +1\right] \frac{ 3 }{ n }\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Oh wait, nevermid, you were right. Now distribute. Haha.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Also, remember the sum rules from I think algebra or precalculus? Where you can separate the sum: \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}(a \pm b) = \sum_{i=1}^{n}a \pm \sum_{i=1}^{n}b\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Great. So now, you can separete them! Good job. Now, remember what I told you, how n is a constant, and the only thing changing is "i"? Well, You can actually factor out the constant, n, in this case. Use the properties above:\[\frac{ 27 }{ n^3 } \sum_{i=1}^{n}i^2 + \frac{ 3 }{ n } \sum_{i=1}^{n}\] Use the properties i provided above to eliminate "i" and put it in terms of "n". Since you have \(i^2\) you'll be using the third formula, and for the second, use the first formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Changing them you will get: \(\frac{ 27 }{ n^3 }\left( \frac{ n(n+1)(2n+1) }{ 6 } \right) + \frac{ 3 }{ n }(n)\). Can you do that? Cross cancel out the terms?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Good job! Now, I think it might be easier to take the limit of this function if you combined it all into one (at least for me it's easier to see what cancels out). But all that's left to do is simply take the limit of that function! You're final result is your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, first off, did we get the same fraction, I did it fairly quick so I could be wrong so let's check that: \(\frac{ 21n^2+27n+9 }{ 2n^2 }\) are we on the same page?
