This tool calculates the approximate area under a curve using the right endpoint of subintervals.

## How to Use the Right Endpoint Approximation Calculator

This calculator estimates the value of definite integrals using the right endpoint approximation method.

### Steps to Use:

- Enter the function f(x) in the “Function, f(x)” field. Use standard mathematical symbols (e.g., ^ for power).
- Enter the start point (a) and end point (b) of the interval in their respective fields.
- Input the number of intervals (n) you want to divide the range [a, b] into.
- Click on the “Calculate” button to get the estimated value of the integral.
- The result will be displayed in the “Result” field.

### How it Calculates the Result

The right endpoint approximation calculates the integral by dividing the interval [a, b] into n equal parts. It then sums the function values at the right endpoints of these divisions and multiplies the sum by the width of the intervals (dx). The formula used is:

`Integral ≈ dx * (f(a+dx) + f(a+2dx) + ... + f(b))`

### Limitations

- The accuracy of the approximation depends on the number of intervals (n). A higher n will generally result in a more accurate estimate.
- The function must be defined and continuous over the interval [a, b]. Discontinuous functions may lead to incorrect results.
- The calculator uses JavaScript’s
`eval`

function to parse and evaluate the mathematical function, so the input must be a valid JavaScript expression.
