This input “The integral from 0 to 1 of cos(pi*x)/(x+1) dx is approximated with the trapezoid value T(h) for steps h=0.5, h=0.25 and h=0.125. For T(0.25) the value 0.1029 is obtained. For T(0.125) the value 0.0979 is obtained. What is the trapezoid value for h = 0.5?”

causes this output :

To find the trapezoid value for h = 0.5, we can use the trapezoid rule formula:

[ T(h) = \frac{h}{2} [f(x_0) + 2\sum_{k=1}^{n-1} f(x_k) + f(x_n)] ]

Given that T(0.25) = 0.1029 and T(0.125) = 0.0979, we can use these values to approximate T(0.5).

Since T(0.5) involves a larger step size (h = 0.5), we can approximate it by taking the average of T(0.25) and T(0.125):

[ T(0.5) \approx \frac{T(0.25) + 2^2 * T(0.25) - T(0.125)}{2^2 - 1} ]

By substituting the given values, we have:

[ T(0.5) \approx \frac{0.1029 + 2^2 * 0.1029 - 0.0979}{2^2 - 1} ]

Computing this will give you the approximate trapezoid value for h = 0.5.
