    Errors of approximations of IVP???

    Pretty much it gave me y'=2xy, y(0)=2 and i had to use Euler's method to estimate y(1) with 5 steps and then 10 steps,
    Then it said calculate the errors of the approximations found above. Does the error begave as predicted?
    Not sure what to do?

    solve the IVP to get the exact value of y(1), then compare to the approximations you arrived at using Euler to calculate the error.
