If f is a continuous real valued function, then the def integral from 0 to 1 of f(x)dx =

a. limit as n-> + infinity of 1/n * the sumation from k=0 to n-1 of f(k/n)

b. limit as n-> + infinity of the sumation from k=1 to n of (1/k)*f(k/n)

c. limit as n-> + infinity of 1/n * the sumation from k=0 to n-1 of kf(k/n)

d. limit as n-> + infinity of the sumation from k=0 to n+1 of kf(k+1/n)

e. the summation from k=0 to +infinity of kf(k/n)

2. Relevant equations

the definite intergral from a to b of f(x)dx = limit as n -> infinity of the summation i=1 to n of f(xi) delta x

where delta x = (b-a)/n

3. The attempt at a solution

Sorry that this is all in words I have no idea how to do the symbols, if someone could help me with that so it is easier for you to read and me to write, that would be great.....

Any ways..... This was a homework question I got last week and have been assigned to present the answer to the class.

Only I have no idea which is right or why.

I believe that the answer is either a or c, leaning more towards a, but I have no idea. I do not even know if the revalant equation that I put down is even what I should be using...or something else...any pushes in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.
