Unformatted text preview: 2 , (2) where , , are unknowns. Find numerical values for , , so that in terms of the new variable X , Eq. (1) becomes X = r + X 2 + O ( 3 ) . (3) (c) Solve Eq. (2) to nd an explicit expression for X in terms of x . (d) Theres a simpler way to dene X in terms of x and r which gives Eq. (1) with no error terms . What is it? (e) Extra credit: If = 1 / 10 , roughly how big is the size of the O ( 3 ) remainder in Eq. (3)? Hint: First, nd the exact formula for the transformed equation X = F ( X, r ) . Since X = x + O ( 2 ) , its reasonable to guess that  X  is not much bigger than  x  itself, say  X  c for some reasonably small value of c . (You will have to guess a value for c .) How big can  r + X 2F ( X, r )  get for  X  c and  r  ? A numerical estimate (by plugging in a few values of X and r ) is ne....
