Use the Euler Method with a step size of 0.2 to estimate f(3) where f′(x)=2x−7 and f(2)=4.
Your answer should be correct to two decimal places.

f(2.2) = f(2) + f'(2) (.2)
f(2.2) = 4 + (2*27) (.2)
f(2.2) = 4 + (47)(.2)
f(2.2) = 4 + (3)(.2)
f(2.2) = 3.4
now do f(2.4) the same way
then f(2.6) etc up to f(3)

now exact
dy/dx = 2 x  7
integrate
y = x^2  7 x + c
when x = 2, y = 4
4 = 4 14 + c
c = 14
so
y = x^2  7 x + 14
so if x = 3
y = 9 21 + 14
y = 2 would be exact 
If that is the case, Damon, wouldn't the answer just be 1?
