Plotting and Finding Area for Discrete Points

I want to plot a graph for following coordinates and then I want to find the area from x = 900 to 1600. What is the correct path to find the area of that limit?

• Have you seen Interpolation[]? – J. M. will be back soon Oct 12 '18 at 3:08
• f = Interpolation[Transpose[{x, y}]]; – Bob Hanlon Oct 12 '18 at 3:28
• Thank you. What does it mean? Could you give me a correct code for finding the area? – Tharaka Oct 12 '18 at 4:32
• You should be able to use Integrate[] on the result of Interpolation[]; have you seen the docs? – J. M. will be back soon Oct 12 '18 at 4:36
• I did not get it. It does not give the answer. Could you tell me the correct code? – Tharaka Oct 12 '18 at 4:47

From @J.M.issomewhatokay and @BobHanlon after

f = Interpolation[Transpose[{x, y}]];


use

NIntegrate[f[x], {x, 800, 1700}]


to get

258.438


Actually, in the spirit of how a definite integral is constructed, one can just approximate it by using

6 Total[y]

258.464


or

6 Total@MovingAverage[y, 2]
Differences[x].MovingAverage[y, 2]

258.419


where, 6 comes from the result of Differences[x].

• @J.M.issomewhatokay. Thx a lot for the information. – Αλέξανδρος Ζεγγ Oct 12 '18 at 7:22
• Thank you very Much. – Tharaka Oct 12 '18 at 14:46
