+ 2. The shaded area is the area of concern. We have bounded the area between f(x)

and the x-axis over the interval [0,1].

1.)

a. Let n= 2, so partition the area over the interval [0,1] into 2 equal sections by drawing lines up to

the f(x) graph. Use these lines as the right-hand endpoints of rectangles.

b. Determine x ∆ . ( Hint x ∆ =

c. Use the right endpoints to estimate the upper sum of the area under the curve by filling out the

chart below:

d.) Represent the process of summing up the 8 rectangles you just calculated in the chart, using

sigma/summation notation for representing.

3.) Draw a picture of the graph f(x) = x

2

+ 2 over the interval [0,1] such that the area under the curve is

partitioned into an infinite amount of rectangles bounded by the curve.

4.) Let n not be defined by a real number. In other words, n is just n, we will partition the interval [0,1] into n

pieces. Use sigma/summation notation to represent the area under the curve f(x) = x

2

+ 2 over the interval

[0,1] if you partition the area into n rectangles.

5.) Find the limit as n-> of the summation of the “n” rectangles as you have found in problem number 4. In
