### Example Question #11 : Midpoint Riemann Sums

Solve the integral

using the midpoint Riemann sum approximation with subintervals.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Midpoint Riemann sum approximations are solved using the formula

where is the number of subintervals and is the function evaluated at the midpoint.

For this problem, .

The approximate value at each midpoint is below.

The sum of all the approximate midpoints values is , therefore

### Example Question #12 : How To Find Midpoint Riemann Sums

Let

What is the Midpoint Riemann Sum on the interval divided into four sub-intervals?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The interval divided into four sub-intervals gives rectangles with vertices of the bases at

For the Midpoint Riemann sum, we need to find the rectangle heights which values come from the midpoint of the sub-intervals, or f(1), f(3), f(5), and f(7).

Because each interval has width 2, the approximated Midpoint Riemann Sum is

### Example Question #13 : How To Find Midpoint Riemann Sums

Using midpoint Riemann sum, approximate the area under the curve of from using 4 rectangular partitions.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Four rectangles from to would give us a .

Thus, there is a rectangle from to , a rectangle from to , a rectangle from to , and a rectangle from to .

To find the area, evaluate the function at each midpoint of all the rectangles to get the height, then multiply it by the width of the rectangle and sum it all together.

Hence, evaluate at and :
