    [SOLVED] Euler Method

    Use the Improved Eulerís Method with h = 0.2 to approximate (to 4 decimal places)
    the solution of y' = −2xy , y(0) = 3 on 0=<x <=1 . Compare your approximations with
    the true values by calculating the errors.

    Am not sure how to start everytime am doing this my values are just gettin bigger and bigger wen thier supposed to go smaller???
    isnt the true solution e^-x^2
    my y1=2.88 y2=2.93? what am i doing wrong!
