So I missed a class and am trying to figure out a question in my textbook but am completely lost. It goes a little something like this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let f(x)=x^{3}and let P=<-2,0,1,3,4> be a partition of [-2,4].

a) Compute Riemann Sum S(f,P*) if the points <x_{1}*,x_{2}*,x_{3}*,x_{4}*>=<-1,1,2,4> are embedded in P.

Now I know how to calculate other Riemann Sums but I have not encountered one with a partition and subintervals yet. I tried to do the autodidactic thing and look up examples and videos but I could not find one similar to this. If I could get some help on how I approach this type of question that would be great.

The answer is 79.

Thanks :)
