# For each interval [a, b] and value of n given in Problems 1-6, find h and the values of x 0 , x 1 … x n . [ − 1 , 4 ] n = 5

To determine

To calculate: The value of h and the values of x0,x1xn for the given interval [1,4] and given value of n=5.

Explanation

Given information:

The interval is [1,4] and value of n=5.

Formula used:

For each interval [a,b] and interval n the h can be calculated as;

h=ban

And,

xn=a+nh

Calculation:

The interval is [1,4] and value of n=5.

And,

a=1b=4

For each interval [a,b] and interval n the h can be calculated as;

h=ban

By using the above formula,

h=4(1)5=55=1

For x0 substitute n=0 in the function xn=a+nh,

x0=1+01=1

For x1 substitute n=1 in the function xn=a+nh,

x1=1+11=0

For x2
