## Question number: 119

» Numerical Analysis » Interpolation Formulae » Newton (Dividend Difference)

Appeared in Year: 2012

### Describe in Detail

An unknown function u _{x} has been tabulated below for some selected values of x. Use Newton’s divided difference formula on these to find an approximate value of u _{3}:

x | 0 | 2 | 5 | 10 |

u | 3 | 19 | 73 | 223 |

### Explanation

The Newton’s divided difference formula is used when the x-values not equally spaced. The Newton’s formula of divided difference for estimating u _{x} corresponding to x is
