# Find the exact values of the Gauss points 0x1x2x34 and weights for n=3. Use the derivation given

in class, but work over the interval [0,4]. The Gauss points for a given value of n will be the zeros of the polynomial of degree n that is obtained by using Gram-Schmidt on the standard power function basis for the polynomials, and requiring each of the orthogonal basis polynomials to take on the value 1 when evaluated at x=1
