1. f(2.2) = f(2) + f'(2) (.2)
f(2.2) = 4 + (2*2-7) (.2)
f(2.2) = 4 + (4-7)(.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)

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

4. If that is the case, Damon, wouldn't the answer just be 1?

8. Euler's method help in Calculus?????

Let dy/dx=xy . Use Euler's method with step size of 0.5 and the initial condition of y(0) = 3 to estimate y(2). I really am not sure if I did this right, but I got 3.4568 for y(2). I actually feel like it is wrong.
