(iii) (5 points) sin x(1 + cos x)4 dx
Hint: Use the generalized power rule.
2. (20 points) Find the area under the curve y = x3 + x between x = 0 and x = 1 by
following the steps below:
Hint: The answer is 43 .
(i) (2 points) Subdivide the interval [0, 1] into n equal subintervals [x0 , x1 ], [x1 , x2 ], . . . , [xn−1 , xn ].
What is the length ∆x of every subinterval? For every k, write an expression for
xk .
(ii) (5 points) Sketch the rectangles that you will be using in the graph below and write
down an expression for the area of the rectangle over [xk , xk+1 ].

(v) (4 points) Compute the indefinite integral F (x) = x3 + x dx (so that F 0 (x) =
x3 + x) and find F (1) − F (0). You should be obtaining the same result as in (iv).
You will understand why in section 4.4.
