    Here f (x, y) = -y+x+2, x0 = 0 and y0 = 2, and we are to use h = 0.1. We begin by approximating the value of y at x1 = x0 + h =0.1. A first approximation y1(1) to this value is found using the formula,
    y1(1) = y0 + h f (x0,y0) = 2.000 +0.1 (-2.000+0.000+2.000) = 2.000
    We now find the second approximation y1(2).
    Since f (x1,y1(1)) = f (0.100, 2.000) = -2.000+0.100+2.000 = 0.100

    y1(2) = y0 + ½ [f ...
