### Example Question #46 : How To Find Midpoint Riemann Sums

Estimate the area under the curve for the function below with the midpoint Riemann sum, in the interval from to , using four rectangles. Round to the nearest hundredth.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Since we're using the midpoint sum, we need to separate our interval into 4 subintervals for each rectangle: [1,2]; [2,3]; [3,4]; and [4,5]. Each of these is 1 unit across, and the height of the rectangle is going to be the value of the function at the midpoints of these intervals.

Since the area of a rectangle is length*height, we have the following sum as our approximation:

which comes out to

We approximate this further as 6.91 and get our final answer.

The integral is thus:

### Example Question #50 : How To Find Midpoint Riemann Sums

Using the method of midpoint Reimann sums, approximate the area of the region between the functions and over the interval using three midpoints.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The Reimann sum approximation of an integral of a function with subintervals over an interval takes the form:

Where is the length of the subintervals.

For this problem, since there are three midpoints, the subintervals have length , and the midpoints are .

Furthermore, since the question is asking for the area between the two functions, it's asking for the difference between the larger function over the interval, f(x), and the smaller function, g(x).

The integral is thus:
