Integral Approximation and Error Analysis

  1. Oct 10, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Approximation of e^(x^2+3x+1) from 0 to 3 within .2 of the actual integral.


    2. Relevant equations

    Riemann Sum or Trapezoidal. (We haven't learned Taylor yet).

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Last n value i found was 148068 which gave me a delta x of 3/148068...im very confused.
