Great. Is your method of quadrature the trapezoidal rule, or Simpson's rule? (or other?)

Left to our own devices, are we? Okay, not a problem. If we end up not using the expected method, it won't matter much; our answer should be approximately equal. I'll go ahead and use trapezoidal partitions. |dw:1440869313600:dw|

Since a trapezoidal approximation converges pretty well, I won't use more than 3 partitions, that should do just fine. (Plus the interval can be split very easily.) |dw:1440869436882:dw|

So, \[\int_0^3\left(-\frac{1}{4}x^2+10\right)\,dx\approx \sum(\text{areas of trapezoids})\] Recall the area of a trapezoid: |dw:1440869582894:dw| so you have \[\int_0^3\left(-\frac{1}{4}x^2+10\right)\,dx\approx \frac{f(0)+f(1)}{2}+\frac{f(1)+f(2)}{2}+\frac{f(2)+f(3)}{2}\] since \(C=1\) for all trapezoids. Here, \(f(x)=-\dfrac{1}{4}x^2+10\).
