Definite Integrals and Rate of Change

Please see attached file for full problem description.

16. An old rowboat has sprung a leak. Water is flowing into the boat at a rate given in the following table.

t minutes 0 5 10 15
r(t), liters/min 12 20 24 16

(a) Compute upper and lower estimates for the volume of water that has flowed into the boat during the 15 minutes.
Number of subintervals: ?????
Width of each subinterval: ?????

Interval Minimum Endpoint Maximum Endpoint

Lower Estimate: ????

Upper Estimate: ????

(b) Draw a graph to illustrate the lower estimate. (Once you have the graph completed, you can use the Drawing Toolbar to create appropriate rectangles.)

Insert your graph.
