## Main Question or Discussion Point

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_function

If you have erf(1.00) and are asked to solve for the approximate value by using the trapezoid rule with n=6, how would you go about doing so?

Since the function is erf(x) the 'x' goes into the limits of integration but a 't' is used as a variable in the actula function. How do you know what to use for 'u'. Do you simply treat the function as an integral from 0 to 1 and evauluate 'u' from 0 to 1 as well????

thanks for any help?
