### What is Meant by Trapezoid Rule?

In mathematics, the trapezoid rule is the rule used to determine the area under the curve. In this method, the area under the curve by dividing the total area into smaller trapezoids instead of dividing into rectangles. In this method, the integration method works by approximating the area under the graph of a function as a trapezoid and it calculates the area. It gives a better approximation result. In other words, the trapezoid rule is a numerical method used to approximate the definite integral.
