(-1,1) is classified as a saddle point because the value it gives after the second derivative test is less than 0 therefore the value is inconclusive. While (0,1) is classified as a local maximum because the value it gives after the second derivative test is a negative.

after re-calculating the euler-midpoint method. the value I got was 1.8172 while using normal euler method is 1.968. however, I can't seem to find the exact solution to minus off the 1.8172 value to get the global error.

An initial-value problem is given by the differential equation, f(x,y) = x + y, y(0) = 1.64 The Euler-midpoint method is used to find an approximate value to y(0.1) with a step size of h = 0.1. Then use the integrating factor method, to find the exact value of y(0.1). Hence, ...
