regla trapezoidal

Explanation:
La regla trapezoidal es uno de los métodos usados para obtener valores aproximados de ecuaciones o de gráficas obtenidas experimentalmente.
Esta regla se usa en particular para obtener una aproximación del área para una curva. Para ello:
a) se divide el eje horizontal en intervalos,
b) se traza una vertical por cada extremo de intervalo
c)se trazan segmentos entre los puntos consecutivos en que la curva corta a dichas verticales
d) se estima el área de cada trapecio delimitado por el intervalo en el eje horizontal, las dos verticales por el extremo del mismo y el segmento trazado por las intersecciones de las mismas con la curva.
