Euler's Method

  1. Nov 9, 2008 #1
    Hi all.

    Could someone give me a hand with this:

    Using Euler's method find an approximate solution to the IVP using step size h = 0.1

    [tex] \frac{dy}{dx} = 4xy + 3 [/tex] , [tex] y(0)=0 [/tex]

    I know how to use Euler's method for something simple like [tex] \frac{dy}{dx} = x + y [/tex]
    But I'm just not to sure what to take as the [tex] f(x,y) [/tex].

    Is it just simply [tex] f(x,y) = 4xy + 3 [/tex]

    Thanks for any help.

    I assume that since the answer was "yes", you will give it the most thought!
