I want to compute x within 0.1% relative error with Simpson method, these are my m-files. Which command i should add for this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

function simps(a, b, n)

%simps(a, b, n) approximates the integral of a function f(x) in the

%interval [a;b] by the composite simpson rule

%n is the number of subintervals

h = (b-a)/n;

sum_even = 0;

for i = 1:n/2-1

x(i) = a + 2*i*h;

sum_even = sum_even + f(x(i));

end

sum_odd = 0;

for i = 1:n/2

x(i) = a + (2*i-1)*h;

sum_odd = sum_odd + f(x(i));

end

integral = h*(f(a)+ 2*sum_even + 4*sum_odd +f(b))/3

function y = f(x)

y=1/x;
