4-33.

Given the graph to the right of $f(x) = 2x + 1$, find:

1. $\int _ { 1 } ^ { 3 } ( 2 x + 1 ) d x$

It's a trapezoid!

2. $\int _ { 1 } ^ { 3 } ( 2 t + 1 ) d t$

You could sketch another graph where the horizontal axis is called t. Or you could let $x = t$ and use the graph above.

3. What is the difference between the expressions in parts (a) and (b)?

None. The finite areas are the same.
