Euler's Method

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

When solving the initial value problem y ' = 2y-x, y(11)=6 using Eulers method with h=0.2, y0=?

I know how to solve Euler's equations with the formula yn = yn-1 + F(xn-1 + yn-1)(h), however I'm not quite sure how or what they want in this particular case. Can anybody please help me out if you have an incline? Thanks.

Since you are told "y(11)= 6", obviously y0= 6 (and x0= 11).

Thanks HallsofIvy! I thought that it meant the eleventh y was 6.
