Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In mathematics, a Riemann sum is an approximation that takes the form Σ f(x)*Δx. It is named after German mathematician Bernhard Riemann. One very common application is approximating the area of functions or lines on a graph, but also the length of curves and other approximations.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
