  1. Dec 10, 2006 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the Riemann sum associated with f(x)=3 x^2 +3 ,\quad n=3 and the partition
    x_0=0,\quad x_1=3,\quad x_2=4,\quad x_3=6,\qquad \mbox{ of } [0,6]
    (a) when x_k^{*} is the right end-point of [x_{k-1},x_k]. .

    (b) when x_k^{*} is the mid-point of [x_{k-1},x_k]

    2. Relevant equations
    I have no idea where to begin.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    ...what is the definition of a Riemann sum for a given tagged partition?
