x4'(x)=-2x1 +0x2 +x3 + 4x4 -3x5 +1, x4(0)=2

x5'(x)=0x1 -x2 +2x3 -3x4 -2x5 +1, x5(0)=3

and I made a program, and I got an output:

w(1)= 94.70989959 w(2)= -5.06974461 w(3)= 81.70881908 w(4)= 7.03658123 w(5)= 12.84918264

but I have no idea how to tell whether or not I'm right. The other examples I've done have been higher order initial value problems that depended on t... so I used the same kind of scheme... but this one doesn't seem to depend on t... so I'm not sure if I'm suppose to do something different or not?

Is there a way to get an exact solution for this for me to check to see if I'm right or?
