Integration:
The process of measuring
the area under a function
plotted on a graph.
Where:
f(x)
is the integrand
a= lower limit of integration
b= upper limit of integration

Trapezoidal Rule is based on the Newton-Cotes Formula
that states if one can approximate the integrand as an nth
order polynomial…

Then the integral of that function is approximated by
the integral of that nth order polynomial.
