Summation Formulas:.
\begin{align*} \sum^n_{i=1}{c} \amp = cn \amp \sum^n_{i=1}{i} \amp= \frac{n(n+1)}{2}\\ \sum^n_{i=1}{i^2} \amp = \frac{n(n+1)(2n+1)}{6} \amp \sum^n_{i=1}{i^3} \amp = \left(\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\right)^2 \end{align*}
Trapezoidal Rule:.
\begin{equation*} \int_a^b{f(x)}\, dx \approx \frac{\Delta x}{2}\big[f(x_0)+2f(x_1) + 2f(x_2) + \cdots + 2f(x_{n-1}) + f(x_{n})\big] \end{equation*}

with Error \(\ds \leq \frac{(b-a)^3}{12n^2}\big[\max \abs{f\,''(x)}\big]\)

Simpson's Rule:.
\begin{equation*} \int_a^b{f(x)}\, dx \approx \frac{\Delta x}{3}\big[f(x_0)+4f(x_1) + 2f(x_2) + 4f(x_3) + \cdots + 2f(x_{n-2}) + 4f(x_{n-1}) + f(x_{n})\big] \end{equation*}

with Error \(\ds \leq \frac{(b-a)^5}{180n^4}\big[ \max\abs{f\,^{(4)}(x)}\big]\)

Taylor Series Expansion for \(f(x)\text{:}\).
\begin{equation*} p_n(x) = f(c) + f\,'(c)(x-c) + \frac{f\,''(c)}{2!}(x-c)^2 + \cdots + \frac{f\,^{(n)}(c)}{n!}(x-c)^n + \cdots \end{equation*}
