    Pretty general question but...

    I've used a summated quadrature rule to evaluate an integral, which involves increasing a value used in the rule from M = 1 to 29, hence increasing the accuracy at which it performs. I'm now trying to plot the convergence towards the exact value of the integral, and been assured that I need to take logs of both axes. However I'm not sure what the point of taking log of the M values is? If anyone knows could they please explain?

    Thanks in advance!
