Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"method of quadrature" i looked that up earlier and Wiki describes it as an old/ancient term for what we now call Rieman (sp?) sums. so i guess this is precalc numerical solutions for the area under a curve. @melstutes? is that what you are trying to learn?!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a math essentials class. It is a virtual class that is supposed to be an introductory class. I have never had geometry so I am lost with this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5ok! we have to divide the interval into for example three subintervals, as below: \[\begin{gathered} {x_0} = 0, \hfill \\ {x_1} = 1 \hfill \\ {x_2} = 2 \hfill \\ {x_3} = 3 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5the requested value is given by the subsequent formula: \[I = \frac{{3  0}}{3}\left( {f\left( 0 \right) + f\left( 1 \right) + f\left( 2 \right)} \right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5now we have: \[\begin{gathered} f\left( 0 \right) = 5 \hfill \\ f\left( 1 \right) =  \frac{1}{2} + 5 = \frac{9}{2} \hfill \\ f\left( 2 \right) =  \frac{4}{2} + 5 = 3 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so, after a substitution, we get: \[\begin{gathered} I = \frac{{3  0}}{3}\left( {f\left( 0 \right) + f\left( 1 \right) + f\left( 2 \right)} \right) = \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = 5 + \frac{9}{2} + 3 = \frac{{25}}{2} = 12.5 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0More importantly, a quadrature is (typically) a trapezoidal approximation that depends on an interpolation of a given function using a specific set of points and a polynomial basis. A good example is the Gaussian quadrature: https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Gaussian_quadrature which is used to approximate integrals of the form \(\displaystyle\int_{1}^1f(x)\,dx\) (and can be extended to approximate integrals over \([a,b]\)).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would count the number of "squares" under the curve. If there is part of a square try to estimate to the nearest 1/2 square. The idea is to get a reasonable estimate of the area (not an exact number)
