Explain geometrically how the Trapezoid Rule is used to approximate a definite integral.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution:-

Step1

Trapezoid Rule - We can approximate the exact area under a curve between a and b,  Where n is the number of trapezoids equals a, and through are the equally spaced x coordinates of the right edges of  trapezoids  1 through n.

Step2

Example

The figure below shows three trapezoids drawn under the function  For the function in the above figure with three trapezoids, here’s the math  = = = = =13.5
