The sides of the trapezette are the " bounding ordinates "; their abscissae being xo and xo+H, where H is the breadth of the trapezette.
If there are m of these strips, and if the breadth of each is h, so that H =mh, it is convenient to write x in the form xo+Oh, and to denote it by x 0, the corresponding value of u being ue.
The breadth of the trapezette being mh, it may be shown that its area is 2 2 N 4 4 iv I mh ug m + 24 m h u gm + 1920 m h u g m + 322560 no/tourgm -}- m3l1gu i„?
Thus we find from (i) that Simpson's second formula, for the case where the top is a parabola (with axis, as before, at right angles to the base) and there are three strips of breadth h, may be replaced by area = 8h(3u i + 2U 1 + 3us).
It follows that, by taking two ordinates in a certain position with regard to the bounding ordinates, the area of any parabolic trapezette whose top passes through their extremities can be expressed in terms of these ordinates and of the breadth of the trapezette.
the section by a plane parallel to these planes and midway between them) is S i, the volume is *H(So + 4 S 1 S 2), where H is the total breadth.
