How do you use the trapezoidal rule with n=10 to approximate the area between the curve #1/sqrt(1+x^3)# from 0 to 2?
Area is approximately
Divide the range
Calculate the value of
Calculate the area of each trapezoidal strip as
Sum the area of all the trapezoidal strips to get an approximation of the integral.
Theoretically this could be done by hand (if you need the arithmetic practice) but I chose to use a spreadsheet:
