`x` |
A vector of the values at which the function is to be plotted. |

`y` |
A vector with the values of the function at the corresponding x-values. |

A single numerical value of the approximate area under the curve generated with the x and y values.

Compared to the trapezoidal algorithm, this is usually more accurate.
