#### Answer:

Area is approximately

#### Explanation:

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:
