  1. dear sir can you help me please with the below given problem Let D [a; b] R be a closed bounded interval over the real line For any innetely smooth real valued function f dened over the interval D, given a positive integer number N and a set of N + 1 real coefficients alpha(i); i = 0; : : : ;N and xi = a + i (b – a)/N and I(f) = integration from a to b f(x) dx and QN(f) = sum form i=0 to N alpha(i) f(x(i) ) Write a matlab code that, given the values of N, a and b as input, returns the value of the cofficients alpha(i) that satisfy the condition QN(f) = I(f); for f(x) = x^j ; j = 0; : : : ;N
