Question 09 (a)  

The function satisfies and . The spreadsheet below will be used to approximate using Euler’s method. An arrow indicates that the entry of a cell will be copied down the column.
(a) What should you type in cell C3? Try to make your syntax as accurate as possible. 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

Recall that in the Euler’s method for one has . 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. As given in the Hint, we need to implement the formula with step size (in cell A2),
Answer: .
