using the midpoint rule with . Round your answer to three decimal places.

Possible Answers:

None of the other choices are correct.

Correct answer:

Explanation:

The interval  is  units in width; the interval is divided evenly into five subintervals  units in width, with their midpoints shown: 

The midpoint rule requires us to calculate:

where  and 

Evaluate  for each of :

Since ,

we can approximate  as

.
