You might find this to be a fairly handy rundown on some of the ways to have LaTeX typeset code: sharelatex.com/learn/Code_listing

comment Rectangular Approximation Method (Riemann Sums) Diagrams
I'd highly recommend you spend the afternoon necessary to get a basic handle on PGF/Tikz and PGFPlots (the manuals for both are excellent!). They will draw figures like these in LaTeX, but will also make every figure you draw for the rest of your professional life look neater.

comment Both scale and reduce height of graphics
@DavidCarlisle [width=...] does not do what was asked in the question, namely to scale the width and then specify a height independently of that scaled width. What ourania wants is effectively something like [widith=50%,height=1cm]. resize box is the only way I know to specify an image width as a relative value and the height as an absolute value.

comment Both scale and reduce height of graphics
\includegraphics[width=1cm]{wikipedia.jpg} would scale the width to be 1cm and scale the height to maintain the aspect ratio. orania wants to scale the width to be half of its original dimension but then break the aspect ratio by changing the height of the scaled image (but leaving the new width unchanged). One could, of course, do this in one step with \includegraphics[width=2cm,height=1cm]{wikipedia.jpg}, provided that the absolute target width is known.

comment Both scale and reduce height of graphics
The question does not say that the height of the image is not to be changed, only that the height of the original png should not be changed. I interpret this as meaning that all resizing should happen in LaTeX rather than Photoshop.

comment how to label equations in this way?
If you use the amsmath package then you can reference equations with \eqref{}, which puts parentheses around the equation number automatically.

comment Automatically highlight undefined references
Thanks David Carlisle. I used \nfss@text{\reset@font\colorbox{yellow}{??$_\text{#3}$}} and put the whole thing into a .sty file to make a package that I can invoke to achieve this functionality on all my manuscripts.
