Solution to Exercise 5

Your solution, in tabular form, and abbreviated to save space, should have looked something like this:

0         1
0.05      1.05
0.1       1.10386
.         .
.         .
.         .
0.95      3.12929
1.        3.36638

And your plot of this solution should have looked something like this (though your points may not have been this size, or in color):

Euler 5 Plot

If your solution doesn't match what you see here, then go back to Mathematica and carefully check the parameters that you passed to the euler program. If necessary, change them, and reevaluate the commands.

Now, back to the exercises...
