Welcome to my first of many questions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Express the area under the curve y=x^{5}from 0 to 2 as a limit.

My guess based on class notes:

[tex]

\mathop {\lim }\limits_{n \to \infty } \sum\limits_{i = 0}^2 {\left( {x_i^* } \right)} ^5 \Delta x

[/tex]

Back of the book:

[tex]

\mathop {\lim }\limits_{n \to \infty } \frac{{64}}{{n^6 }}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {i^5 }

[/tex]

What am I missing??

where did [tex]\frac{{64}}{{n^6 }}[/tex] come from?
