Please help:) Solve the initial value problem \(dy/dx=\frac{1}{2](x+y)-1\), \(0\le x\le0.3\), \(y(0)=1\), using fourth-order Runge-Kutta method with h=0.1. Compare your results with the analytical solution \(y=e^{\frac{x}{2}}-x\) to this differential equation.

    You have to evaluate a number of expressions at every step. It looks like they want 3 steps 0 to 0.3 in steps of 0.1 so you could do it with a calculator

    \(y=e^{\frac{x}{2}}-x\) plug in x=0.3 and evaluate. compare to your answer using runge-kutta

    x= 0.3 y will be 0.862

    ok so I shoud check if I get the same when I solve dy/dx=1/2(x+3)-1 using range-kutta method for x=0.3

    Here is a bit of matlab y=1; h=0.1; x=0; for ii=1:3 k1= h*fff(x,y); k2= h*fff(x+h/2,y+k1/2); k3= h*fff( x+h/2, y+ k2/2); k4= h*fff( x+h,y+k3); y= y+ (k1+2*k2+2*k3+k4)/6 x= x+h end where fff(x,y) is defined as function z=fff(x,y) z= 0.5*(x+y)-1; I still have to check if I did this correctly...

    The matlab gives y= 0.861834234021667 the exact answer e^(0.15)-0.3 = 0.861834242728283
