Unformatted text preview: approximation of the ﬁrst derivative of the following function at x i = 1 where the step size h = 0 . 1. Repeat the process for h = 0 . 05 and h = 0 . 01. (b) [2pts] Compute the true fractional relative error for each case by using the analytical solution of f ( x ) = sin x . Discuss the results. *You may use a calculator to obtain numerical values of sin x and cos x . 1...
