# Using the Midpoint rule to find the distance traveled

I was given a chart with 30 second intervals starting at 0 seconds up to 15 minutes. For each interval there is a number telling you the miles/hour for that interval (car driving).

I am supposed to approximate the distance traveled using the midpoint rule (Delta t = 1 minute)

I took the data and turned the left hand column into seconds and the right hand column into feet per second. (Get the numbers in the same units)

Here they are:
