## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 12th Business Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Numerical Methods Ex 5.1

Question 1.

Evaluate (log ax)

Solution:

Question 2.

If y = x^{3} – x^{2} + x – 1 calculate the values of y for x = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and form the forward differences table.

Solution:

Given y = x^{3} – x^{2} + x – 1

When

x = 0, y = 0 – 0 + 0 – 1 = -1

x = 1, y = 1 – 1 + 1 – 1 = 0

x = 2, y = 8 – 4 + 2 – 1 = 5

x = 3, y = 27 – 9 + 3 – 1 = 20

x = 4, y = 64 – 16 + 4 – 1 = 51

x = 5, y = 125 – 25 + 5 – 1 = 104

Question 3.

If h = 1 then prove that (E-1 ∆) x^{3} = 3x^{2} – 3x + 1.

Solution:

Given h = 1

(E^{-1} Δ)x³ = Vx³

= f(x) – f (x – h)

= f(x) – f(x – 1)

= x³ – (x – 1)³

= x³ – [x³ – 3x² + 3x – 1]

= x³ – x³ + 3x² – 3x + 1

= 3x² – 3x + 1

Hence proved

Question 4.

If f(x) = x^{2} + 3x then show that ∆f(x) = 2x + 4

Solution:

f(x) = x^{2} + 3 x

∆f(x) = f(x + h) – f(x)

= (x + h)^{2} + 3(x + h) – x^{2} – 3x

= x^{2} + 2xh + h^{2} + 3x + 3h – x^{2} – 3x

= 2xh + 3h + h^{2}

Put h = 1, ∆f(x) = 2x + 4

Question 5.

Evaluate \(\Delta\left[\frac{1}{(x+1)(x+2)}\right]\) by taking ‘1’ as the interval of differencing.

Solution:

Question 6.

Find the missing entry in the following table

Solution:

Since only four values of y are given, the polynomial which fits the data is of degree three. Hence fourth differences are zeros.

Question 7.

Following are the population of a district

Find the population of the year 1911?

Solution:

Since five values are given, the polynomial which fits the data is of degree four.

From the given table

y_{0} = 363, y_{1} = 391, y_{2} = 421, y_{4} = 467 and y_{5} = 501

501 – 5(467) + 10y_{3} – 10(421) + 5(391) – 363 = 0

501 – 2335 + 10y_{3} – 4210 + 1955 – 363 = 0

-501 + 2335 + 4210 – 1955 + 363 = 10y_{3}

10y_{3} = 4452

y_{3} = 445.2

Hence the population of the year 1911 is 445 thousand

Question 8.

Find the missing entries from the following.

Solution:

Since only four values of f(x) are given, the polynomial which fits the data is of degree three. Hence fourth differences are zeros.

Solution:
