1-88.

If $y = \large\frac { x } { x + 1 }$, approximate the area under the curve for $0 ≤ x ≤ 4$ using eight left endpoint rectangles of equal width.

Area of each rectangle $= bh$.
All rectangles have a base of $0.5$. Heights are determined by the function. (Notice that the first rectangle has a height of $0$.)
