I am asked to deduce the shape of a curve by knowing the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The estimate of the definite integral for the area using the trapezium rule with 2 intervals of equal widths is above the real value.

The estimate of the definite integral for the area using the trapezium rule with 4 intervals of equal widths is below the real value.

Can anyone help with this problem?

Thanks
