You should evaluate the integral using midpoint rule, hence, you need to split the interval `[0,pi/2]` in n = 4 subintervals of equal width such that:
`[0 , pi/8] , [pi/8 , pi/4] , [pi/4 , 3pi/8] , [3pi/8 , pi/2]`
You need to find the midpoint of each subinterval such that:
`x_1 = (pi/8 - 0)/2 , x_2 = (pi/4 - pi/8)/2 , x_3 = (3pi/8 - pi/4)/2 , x_4 = (pi/2 - 3pi/8)/2`
Evaluating the integral using the midpoint rule, yields:
`int_0^(pi/2) 2 cos^5 x dx =...
