    When I plugged it into my calculator, the integral came out to be 5.83 (3sf) so thats close enough seeing that the trepezium rule is meant to be inaccurate as it is an estimate. You near definitely did it correctly.

    Where is the doubling of the middle 'edges'?

    idkkk :/

    I thought you use the formula like this so you do the width x 1/2 then 2 + first height all of the sum of the middle heights and then add the last one.

    Indeed what is written in script is correct but that is not what you've done - check your substitution.

    That's not what you got before though - your substitution [which you've now deleted] was incorrect.

    My calculator can do integrals accurately. I didn't use your estimate, I plugged in the equation and the bounds and it told me an accurate answer.
