I have posted a link there to this thread so the OP can view my work.Calculus question: which would best approximate total water consumption of storage tank?

Water is pumped from a storage tank and the flower of water from the tank is given by C(t) = 25e ^-0.05(t-15)^2 thousand gallons per hour, where t is the number of hours since midnight. Which of the following best approximates the total water consumption for one day (in thousands of gallons)?

a) 33.964

b) 164.202

c) 197.727

d) 198.166

e) 202.144

How do you find this answer? Please explain how you work through this problem, thank you!!
