I'm working on a practice test and got stuck on the question: Approximate the length of the curve y=√x, 0≤x≤1 by the midpoint rule with n=4 and ∆x=0.25.

2. Relevant equations

Is the midpoint rule the same thing as Simpson's rule? I don't remember going over the midpoint rule in class and I can't find it in the book. If it isn't the same as Simpson's rule, what is it?
