compute the approximate value of the solution of the following initial value problem at t = 0.2 y’ = t2+y2, y(0) = 1 2) If A is the approximation to y(0.2) found in part 1) and if B
is the approximate value of y(0.2) with step size 0.02, ﬁnd a linear _
combination of A and B which would give a better approximation to y(0.2).
