Now i'm trying to get my head around this question. I just know they're going to give us a large degree question like this in the exam...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let's say:

I = ∫[e^(x^2)]dx with nodes being x=0 to x=0.5

The 5th degree polynomial is 1 + x^2 + (1/2)(x^4)

So my queries are:

How would I go about finding the upper bound on the error from 0 to 0.5?- My working gives 0.012

How do I get an approximation of I by integrating?- my working gives 0.545

How would I get an upper bound on the integration in the previous question?

Thanks a lot guys and girls.
