## Examination of the Midpoint and Trapezoid Rule Errors |

Use this page to examine the errors associated with the midpoint and trapezoid rules with *n* = 1. Try several examples of functions for which *f"* > 0 on the whole interval and also where *f"* < 0 on the interval. What relationship do you see in the errors?
