# Math Help - forward difference

1. ## forward difference

not too sure about this question at all, i've done the first part but i dont really know what is beiong asked in the other 2 parts, thanks for any help

2. This is essentially asking you to derive the forward difference method using the Taylor series for $f(x+h)$ about the point $x$.

EDIT: A little more of a hint
$f(x + h) - f(x) = hf'(x) + \frac{h^2}{2}f''(\xi)\qquad \xi \in [x,x+h]$
