    Professor i dont understand how to get the height in the rectangles in webwork is there a formula or something that I’m missing or those point suppose to be given?

      Hi Ravanna. Hopefully the email I sent helped you out, but in case anyone else has the same question…

      The height of a rectangle is usually not given, but the information for finding the height of a rectangle usually is…it’s usually the value of the function for *some* point in the subinterval which forms the base of the rectangle. (We saw an example in classs where we were told to use the right-endpoints as the subintervals.) So, for example, if the big interval is [0,1] and if we’re using 10 rectangles, then the first subinterval is [0,1/10], the second subinterval is [1/10, 2/10], the third subinterval is [2/10, 3/10], and so on. If we’re instructed to use the right-endpoints of these subintervals, then the height of the first rectangle is f(1/10), the height of the second rectangle is f(2/10), the height of the third rectangle is f(3/10), and so on. Hope this helps!
