## Problem 1

Let  $f(x)=1-x^{2}$ .

(a) Compute the left-hand Riemann sum approximation of  $\int _{0}^{3}f(x)~dx$ with  $n=3$ boxes.

(b) Compute the right-hand Riemann sum approximation of  $\int _{0}^{3}f(x)~dx$ with  $n=3$ boxes.

(c) Express  $\int _{0}^{3}f(x)~dx$ as a limit of right-hand Riemann sums (as in the definition of the definite integral). Do not evaluate the limit.

## Problem 2

Otis Taylor plots the price per share of a stock that he owns as a function of time

and finds that it can be approximated by the function

$s(t)=t(25-5t)+18$ where  $t$ is the time (in years) since the stock was purchased.

Find the average price of the stock over the first five years.

## Problem 3

Evaluate the indefinite and definite integrals.

(a)   $\int x^{2}e^{x}~dx$ (b)   $\int _{1}^{e}x^{3}\ln x~dx$ ## Problem 4

Evaluate the integral:

$\int \sin ^{3}x\cos ^{2}x~dx$ ## Problem 5

Let  $f(x)=1-x^{2}$ .

(a) Compute the left-hand Riemann sum approximation of  $\int _{0}^{3}f(x)~dx$ with  $n=3$ boxes.

(b) Compute the right-hand Riemann sum approximation of  $\int _{0}^{3}f(x)~dx$ with  $n=3$ boxes.

(c) Express  $\int _{0}^{3}f(x)~dx$ as a limit of right-hand Riemann sums (as in the definition of the definite integral). Do not evaluate the limit.
