43. continued (b) Note that we choose a small interval of x -values because the y -values decrease very rapidly and our calculator cannot handle the calculations for x #2 1. (This occurs because the analytic solution is y 52 2 1 ln (2 2 e 2 x ), which has an asymptote at x 52 ln 2 < 2 0.69. Obviously, the Euler approximations are misleading for x #2 0.7.)
