For each value of , the sequence converges to . Also, if is the Euler method approximation to the solution of the differential equation , on the interval with , then (the red curve) converges to for each in the interval. The points generated by Euler's method are marked in green. Observe that for any , the error between the approximation and the real value increases with the value of .
