To find the error that occurs when the area between the curve (y = x^3 + 1) and the x-axis over the interval ([0,1]) is approximated by the trapezoid rule with (n = 4), you can use the error formula for the trapezoid rule:

[E = -\frac{(b-a)^3}{12n^2}f''(c)]

where:

- (E) is the error,
- (a) and (b) are the limits of integration (in this case, 0 and 1),
- (n) is the number of subintervals (in this case, 4),
- (f''(c)) is the second derivative of the function evaluated at some point (c) in the interval.

First, find the second derivative of (f(x) = x^3 + 1), which is (f''(x) = 6x). Then, evaluate (f''(c)) at a point (c) in the interval ([0,1]).

For simplicity, let's take (c = 1/2), which is a midpoint in the interval.

So, (f''(1/2) = 6(1/2) = 3).

Now plug the values into the error formula:

[E = -\frac{(1-0)^3}{12(4)^2}(3)]

[E = -\frac{1}{192}(3)]

[E = -\frac{3}{192}]

[E = -\frac{1}{64}]

Thus, the error that occurs when the area is approximated by the trapezoid rule with (n = 4) is (-\frac{1}{64}).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
