4. Consider the initial value problem (IVP): y'(t) = 3+t+y y(0)=1

a) Approximate y(1) using Euler's method and step sizes of 0.2. Perform these calculations by hand. What is the exact value of y(1)?
b) Use the computer (e.g. ODE Architect, ODE Toolkit, or your own program) to approximate y(1) using step sizes of 0.1, 0.05, 0.025 and 0.01. What is the general relationship between the error of the approximation and the step size?

google case stury

1. Read the Google Case Study located in the Case Study section of the text.
2. Write a summary of the case study. In your paper explain how Google analyzed their value chain for the purpose of determining where they were able to create value when using their resources, capabiltites and core competencies.
Your summary should be a minimum of 2-3 pages in length and must be in your own words. Use APA style. Include 3-5 references. Only one reference may be from the internet (not Wikipedia). The other references must be found in the Grantham University Online Library.

I'm not sure if you can access the Peer-review articles that is required for references.
