COMP 208 2 of 14 April 15, 2008 Final Examination Version 1 Question 1 What is the approximation to the value of 1 4 0 2 - + x x calculated using the trapezoidal method with 2 panels? (Note: the limits of integration are 0 and 4) a) 24 b) 22 c) 28 d) 26 e) None of the above Question 2 What is the approximation to the value of 1 4 0 2 - + x x calculated using the midpoint method with 2 panels? (Note: the limits of integration are 0 and 4) a) 24 b) 22 c) 28 d) 26 e) None of the above Question 3 Suppose we apply the Euler method to solve: Given the initial values x=0 and y=1, what are the y values for x=1 and x=2 obtained by the algorithm assuming a step size of 1 (i.e., Δ x=1)? a) y(1) = 2; y(2)=4 b) y(1) = 2; y(2)=5 c) y(1) = 4; y(2)=6 d) y(1) = 4; y(2)=5 e) None of the above Question 4 Suppose you are asked to find a cube root of 7, 3 7 . You know that there is a cube root between 0 and 4.Using the bisection method, with these values as your initial interval, what is the third approximation computed to estimate the root? a) 3.0 b) 1.0 c) 1.5 d) 0.5 e) None of the above y x dx dy + = 2
COMP 208 3 of 14 April 15, 2008 Final Examination Version 1 Question 5 Suppose you are asked to find a cube root of 7, 3 7 . Using the Newton-Raphson method, if the first approximation 1.0, what is the second approximation computed to estimate the root?
