Q. Determine which formula produces a right-hand sum approximation to the area between f and the x-axis on [1,10].

[f (1) + f ( 2 ) + f (3) + f (4) + f (5) + f (6) + f (7) + f (8) + f (9) + f (10)]Δ x

[f (1) + f (2) + f (3) + f (4) + f (5) + f (6) + f (7) + f (8) + f (9)]Δx
[f (2) + f (3) + f (4) + f (5) + f (6) + f (7) + f (8) + f (9)]Δ x
[f (2) + f (3) + f (4) + f (5) + f (6) + f (7) + f (8) + f (9) + f (10)]Δx
Q. Which of the following statements is true?

If f is increasing on [a, b] then LHS(2) will provide an overestimate for the area between f and the x-axis on [a, b].
If f is increasing on [a, b] then LHS(2) will provide an underestimate for the area between f and the x-axis on [a, b].
If f is decreasing on [a, b] then RHS(2) will provide an overestimate for the area between f and the x-axis on [a, b].
If f is constant on [a, b] then RHS(2) will provide an underestimate for the area between f and the x-axis on [a, b].

more than 4
more than 48
more than 49
