    Euler's Method

    Hi,

    I have this question.
    For the following initial value problem
    y' = y - y^2

    use the Eulerís method with step size h=0.2 to find the approximate values of y. Compute the solutions and the errors y(xn) - yn for 3 steps.
    how do i start this question?

    Create a table with columns corresponding to x, y, y', in the first row enter the initial state.

    In the next row enter the next x, the y from the previous row plus h times the derivative from the previous row, and y' computed from the two previous colums in this row.

    repeat twice more to give three steps.
