### HP Prime and TI-84 Plus CE: Simpson’s Rule

HP Prime and TI-84 Plus CE:  Simpson’s Rule

Caption:  The Simpson’s Rule applied on ∫ X^2*e^X dx from X = 1 to 4
Actual value:  543.2632185

The program SIMPRULE approximates the integral of f(X)

∫ f(X) dX = h/3 * ( f(a) + 2*Σf(x_E) + 4*∑f(x_O) + f(b) )

Where:
a = the lower limit
b = the upper limit
n = the number of intervals, n is even
h = (b – a)/n
x_E = a + h*I where I is from 1 to n-1 and I is even
x_O = a + h*I where I is from 1 to n-1 and I is odd

HP Prime Program:  SIMPRULE

EXPORT SIMPRULE()

FOR I FROM 1 TO N-1 DO
X:=A+I*H;
IF FP(I/2)==0 THEN
T:=2*EVAL(f)+T;
ELSE
T:=4*EVAL(f)+T;
END;
END;
T:=T*H/3;
RETURN T;
END;

TI-84 Plus CE Program:  SIMPRULE

Input "LOW:",A
Input "HIGH:",B
Input "N (EVEN):",N
(B-A)/N→H
A→X:Y₁→T
B→X:Y₁+T→T
For(I,1,N-1)
A+I*H→X
If fPart(I/2)=0
Then
2*Y₁+T→T
Else
4*Y₁+T→T
End
End

Examples:

Example 1:

∫ cos^2 X dX from X = 0 to X = π, n = 14
Approximation:  1.570796327

Example 2:

∫ X^2 + 3*X – 6 dX from X = 1 to X = 3, n = 14
Approximation: 8.66666667
