the rateof 0.1 L/s, and the wellstirred mixture is removed at the rate of 0.05 L/s. Initially,
the beaker contains 2 L of pure water. a) Let A(t) denote the amount of salt in the beaker at time t. Find the initial value problem
satisﬁed by A(t). b) Solve this initial value problem to ﬁnd A(t). c) How much salt is in the beaker at the moment it overﬂows? Continued on page 4 m 3 April 2003 Mathematics 256 Name Page ‘4 of 8 pages The solution y(t) of a certain initial value problem is approximated using the Improved Euler
method. With a step size of h = 3 / 4, the approximate value for y(1) is found to be 1.20. With
a step size h = 1/4, the approximate value for y(1) is found to be 1.40. 3,) Using Richardson extrapolation, ﬁnd an improved approximation to y(1). b) Estimate how small it should be so that the approximation to y(1) is correct to Within

b) Find the apprOJdmating linear system near this critical point. and use this to determine
the type of the critical point (circle all that apply):
node, saddle point, spiral point, centre, stable, asymptotically stable, unstable.
