    1) What is the problem you are having with this. Tou do know Simpson's
    rule.

    2) Simpson's rule reqires an odd number of points (an even number of
    sub-intervals), so with h=0.25 we have 5 points, but with h=0.2 we
    have 6 points so Simpson's rule is inapplicable.

    3) Use the mid point rule or Euler's method

    Thanks for your guideline... the first question i could probably do but can you help me in getting the answer (without explanation)... i will be doing it tomorrow or sooner . After i am done, i can get back to the thread and check the answer out if i am right. if i got wrong then i will need your explanation.

    Second question should answered the question but is there any theory/prove to show why it cannot be used or illustrate an example with this?

    As for the third question, any references or additional help? Because i am taught Simpson's Rule only as far as i know. i will look up the methods you suggested

    Overall, thanks for your reply/help... i appreciate it a lot.
