Homework Help: Trapezoidal rule

  1. Feb 7, 2006 #1
    hey guys... i kinda forgot how to do this

    question is: find the approximations T8 and M8 for integral of cos(x^2)dx from 1 to 0

    now my question is whether or not that 8 means that n=8

    and also, is this right?

    id do the following:

    n/2[f(0)+f(.2)+f(.4)+f(.6)+f(.8)+f(1)]

    and id use the degree mode on my calculator

    is that how i set it up?
