Trapezium Rule
Figure 1 shows a sketch of part of the curve with equation y = x/(1 + √x). The finite region R, shown shaded in Figure 1, is bounded by the curve, the x-axis, the line with equation x = 1 and the line with equation x = 4.

(a) Complete the table with the value of y corresponding to x = 3, giving your answer to 4 decimal places.

(b) Use the trapezium rule, with all the values of y in the completed table, to obtain an estimate of the area of the region R, giving your answer to 3 decimal places.

(c) Use the substitution u = 1 + √x, to find, by integrating, the exact area of R.
