hi there. the progrma consists in using the simpson 3/8 rule to
>calculate the integral of the following function: e^sinx from 1 to 3
>the rule for sypmpson is the following:
>
>I=(3/8)*(f1+3f2+3f3+2f4+3f5+3f6+2f7.....+3f20+3f21+f22)
>
> HERE I INCLUDE THE PROGRAM I MADE . IT RUNS BUT DOESNT GIVE THE
>RESULT TO THE INTEGRAL. IT SAYS IT IS zERO WHICH IS NOT.
>rules of the game:
>n=21, lower=1, upper=3, h= upper-lower/n, and I has to be a function.

>i will appreciate any help you can give me. this is for this monday.

Hi!
When resultado is calculating, 3/8 is casting to integer, becouse 3 and 8 are implicite integers.
So you can force a cast to float:

float I(float w, float z)
{
 float resultado;
 resultado=((float)3/8)*w*z;
 return (resultado);
}
It,s works...
