A lower Riemann sum is found. The response received a rating of "5" from the student who posted the question.

Solution Preview

The parabola y = x2 - 2x + 3 has a minimum of y = 2 at x = 1 (see the graph below). Thus the three inscribed rectangles have heights of 2, 6, and 27 respectively. Since each has a base of length 3 the Riemann ...
