numerical approximation to an integral
rightsum(f(x), x=a..b, n)
algebraic expression in x
variable of integration
lower bound on the range of integration
upper bound on the range of integration
(optional) indicates the number of rectangles to use
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.
