Simpson's rule for calculating areas states that the area enclosed by a curvilinear figure divided into an even number of strips of equal width, is equal to
half the width of a strip, multiplied by the sum of two extreme offsets, twice the sum of remaining odd offsets, and thrice the sum of the even offsets
one third the width of a strip, multiplied by the sum of two extreme offsets, twice the sum of remaining odd offsets and four times the sum of the even offsets
one third the width of a strip, multiplied by the sum of two extreme offsets, four times the sum of the remaining odd offsets, and twice the sum of the even offsets
one sixth the width of a strip, multiplied by the sum of the two extreme offsets, twice the sum of remaining odd offsets and four times the sum of the even offsets
none of these

C is correct. Because in any general Simpsons formula 4 (odd ordinates).

Deva said:   4 years ago
Option B is for trapezoidal.

Chauhan said:   5 years ago
It depends from where you consider the ordinates. If we consider one (eg. F1, f2, f3. ) then option B is correct and if we consider from zero (f0, f1, f2, f3).

Then option C is correct.

@ALL.

Option B is for Volume
Option C is for Area

So Option C is wrong.

Chhaya said:   6 years ago
The option B is correct. I agree with the given answer.

Pankaj mishra said:   6 years ago
