# P5 Modified Euler Method - Help PLEASE watch

1. I've done it
2. (Original post by -mb-)
The differential equation
dy/dx = 1+xy
with y =1 when x = 0 , is to be solved numerically by a step-by-step method.

(ii) Use one step of the modified Euler method, with step-length 0.2, to find an alternative approximation
for the value of y when x = 0.2 .

Anyone who can explain why the answer is 1.224 not 1.218 WILL be pos repped.

I was just about to ask for the value of y at x=0.1 that you must have obtained in part (i) but you've done it
Ah well, good practice with texing.
