Hi, I'm doing an assignment where I have to approximate the area under a curve by splitting it into rectangles. I'm almost there but I need to evaluate the following in order to get the answer: ?e^(i^2/200) for i = 1 to 10 I've tried writing it out as e^(1/2) + e(4/2) + ... + e^(100/2) but I don't know where to go from there (if that's even helpful at all). Can anyone help? Thanks

There is no formula for the sum. Just calculate each term and add them up.
