 rightsum
 numerical approximation to an integral Calling Sequence rightsum(f(x), x=a..b) rightsum(f(x), x=a..b, n) Parameters

 f(x) - algebraic expression in x x - variable of integration a - lower bound on the range of integration b - upper bound on the range of integration n - (optional) indicates the number of rectangles to use Description

 • Important: The student package has been deprecated. Use the superseding command Student[Calculus1][RiemannSum] instead.
 • The function rightsum computes a numerical approximation to an integral using rectangles. The height of each rectangle (box) is determined by the value of the function at the right side of each interval.
 • Four equal-sized intervals are used by default.
 • A graph of the approximation can be obtained by the Maple procedure rightbox.
 • The command with(student,rightsum) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples
