    I cant really work out the [tex]Q_i - Q_{i-1}[/tex].
    i.e. I dont really know what is[tex] Q_i [/tex],
    espeacially what [tex]Q_0[/tex] is

    I have tried varies ways to caculate Q_0 and Q_1, just cant get the right answer for [tex]Q_1 - Q_0[/tex]

    That's example 6.2 in PDF attached.
