### 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 x 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

### Describe in Detail

Solve the equation:

Use Euler algorithm and tabulate the solution at x = 0.1,0.2,0.3.

### Explanation

The given differential equation is

with initial condition x 0 = 0, y 0 = 0

Using Euler, s method,

where

We obtain y at x = 0.1

Again obtain y at x = 0.2

Similarly y at x = 0.3
