Numerical Analysis is a methodology to approximate the solutions of various types of equations within some accuracy. There are basically two cases when we need Numerical Analysis. The first case is when the solution of the given equation cannot be obtained exactly( for example x5+x+1=0, integral of (exp(-x^2)), solving differential equations). The second case is when a function is not known in the whole domain, but partially(for example from measurements), We will discuss how to approximate the
