    Well, the integral in part b is the area under the graph between x = r - 1 and x = r. Any rectangle between these two x values which lies totally beneath the curve will have smaller area, right?

    c and d follow fairly naturally from b. Note that the integral between 1 to N is the same as the integral from 1 to 2 + the integral from 2 to 3 + ... + the integral from N-1 to N.
