# Strips, Ordinates, Intervals???

Right. Please can someone tell me which ones of the three are the space between two of the 'lines' and which ones represent the 'lines' for a Simpsons Rule/Trapezium Rules question.

lines?

The ordinates are the y-coordinates.

The ordinates are the y-coordinates.

Do you mean the x-coordinates?

If I say my car is black will you ask me whether I mean that my car is white?
Funny.

In Simpsons Rule you use x-coordinate values to generate an estimate of an area, not the y-coordinates.

Good luck finding the area without working out the y-coordinates.
I think that I understand what you are asking. The intervals are the space between each of the x values. For example, if you were trying to numerically intergate something between 1 and 2 with 10 strips you would have intervals of 0.1. I'm pretty sure the answer is intervals.
strip = the area (trapezium)
ordinate = line/point between two trapeziums

there will be one more ordinate than strips
2^1/2
strip = the area (trapezium)
ordinate = line/point between two trapeziums

there will be one more ordinate than strips

Thank you.
Hi my teacher said that a strip is the space between y0
