Compute the value of by Simpson’s 1/3 rd rule. Given that ln4.0 = 1.39, ln4.2 = 1.43, ln4.4 = 1.48, ln4.6 = 1.53, ln4.8 = 1.57, ln5.0 = 1.61, ln5.2 = 1.65

Explanation

So, the seven ordinates of the integrand using Simpson’s rule is

Where h = 1/6 (b-a) and y k =f (a + kh) for k = 0,1, 2,3, 4,5, 6

Here, b = 5.2, a = 4, h = 0.2, f (x) = lnx

Using Simpson’s rule is

Describe in Detail

Given the following values of the function y = f (x); evaluate f (4) and also find x for which f (x) = 25.

f (1) = 10, f (2) = 15, f (3) = 42.

Explanation

Given that y = f (x), So

x 1 2 3 4

y 10 15 42?

To find the missing value, we use binomial expansion method. Here 3 values are known, we would take third order finite difference zero. Thus,

Second question is that if we have given that value of y = f (x) =25, then find x using Lagrange’s inverse interpola

Describe in Detail

The observed-values of a function are respectively 168,120,72 and 63 at the four positions 3,7, 9 and 10 of the independent variable. What is the best estimate you can give for the value of the function at the position 6 of the independent variable?

Explanation

Using Lagrange’s formula

Given that a = 3, b = 7, c = 9, d = 10 and f (a) =168, f (b) =120, f (c) =72, f (d) =63

Find x = 6, the values of f (x) =?

Describe in Detail

In a ticket counter, at some point of time the sequence of males (M) and females (F) was found as

MMFMFFFMFMMFFFFMFMMMM

Use runs test to examine if the sequence is random (5 % critical value of the number r of runs with n 1 = 11, n 2 = 10 is 6).

Explanation

Suppose a sample size n contains n 1 symbols of one type and n 2 symbols of the other type. The null hypothesis is the symbols occur in random order. The alternative is the symbols occur in a set pattern. The lower and upper critical value is obtained from tables. If the observed number of runs in a sample lies in between these critical values, the
