## Main Question or Discussion Point

By combining the two equations i should be able to solve for u' and get rid of u'':

u_(i-1) = u_i + (-h)*u' + 1/2 * (-h)^2 * u'' + O(h^4)

u_(i-2) = u_i + (-2h)*u' + 1/2 * (-2h)^2 * u'' + O(h^4)

But i keep getting stuck and can't come up with the answer below.

Can anyone help me please.

u'=((3u_i-4u_(i-1)+u_(i-2))/2h)+O(h^4)

u_(i-1) = u_i + (-h)*u' + 1/2 * (-h)^2 * u'' + O(h^4)

u_(i-2) = u_i + (-2h)*u' + 1/2 * (-2h)^2 * u'' + O(h^4)

But i keep getting stuck and can't come up with the answer below.

Can anyone help me please.

u'=((3u_i-4u_(i-1)+u_(i-2))/2h)+O(h^4)
