Electricity is consumed between the hours of midnight (t = 0) and 6 a.m. (t = 6). Selected values of the rate of consumption are shown in the table below, with t measured in hours past midnight, and R(t) measured in KW per hour. Use 4 trapezoids to estimate the total amount of electricity to the nearest KW consumed between midnight and 6 a.m. (10 points)

t (hours) | 0 | 1 | 2 | 5 | 6 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

R(t) KW/hr | 400 | 200 | 350 | 200 | 150 |
