# Simpson's rule confusion. quick help please. watch

1. I was reading a report for numerical methods just now, and I got very confused.
Basically, I just have a quick question or two.

If I get trapezium rule estimates, say T8.
AND I get midpoint, M8
that means that S8 = (2M8+T8)/3 right?

does this also mean that if I have an estimate with trapezium rule with say, h = 0.25, and midpoint with h = 0.25, the subsequent simpson's rule with be with h = 0.25?
2. up
3. Yes to both questions.

thanks, but I made this thread because of a question I saw which had a different answer. If I find it I'll post it.
