**Introduction**

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is an examination held in India that primarily assesses a student's complete mastery of numerous undergraduate engineering and scientific disciplines in preparation for a master's degree program and work in the public sector. GATE Online Application Processing System is where candidates must register and fill out the application form (GOAPS). You can visit the official site __GATE__ for getting information on registration dates and deadlines.

Now we will see some Numerical methods and calculus questions with their solutions and proper explanation.

I. f is continuous in [−1,1]

II. f is not bounded in [−1,1]

III. A is nonzero and finite **(GATE CSE 2015 Set 2)**

**Solution) **II and III only

5. If for non-zero x, af(x)+bf(1x)=1x−25

where a≠b, then what is the value of the following integral? **(GATE CSE 2015 Set 3)**

**Solution) **

6. Assume you wish to go from zero to one hundred on the number line. You either travel straight a unit distance or take a shortcut at each step. A shortcut is merely a pair of numbers I j with the prefix I j. If you have the shortcut I j and are on the number line at the point I, you can go straight to j. Assume that T(k) is the fewest number of steps required to get from k to 100. Assume that there is only one shortcut involving any number and that the shortcut from 9 to 15 is in particular. Let T(9) = 1+ min(T(y),T(z)) be the case for y and z. Then the product yz has a value of. **(GATE CSE 2014 Set 3)**

**Solution) **150

7. In the interval [0,2], a function f(x) is continuous. It is well known that f(0) = f(2) = 1 and f(1) = 1. Which of the following statements is required to be correct? **(GATE CSE 2014 Set 1)**

**Solution)** in the interval (0,1), there exist a y such that f(y)=f(y+1)

8. What is the value of the following integral? **(GATE CSE 2014 Set 3)**

**Solution) **-2π

9. What is the value of t is if the function f(x)= x sinx satisfies the following equation: f"(x)+f(x)+t cosx=0. **(GATE CSE 2014 Set 1)**

**Solution)** -2

f′(x)=xcos(x)+sin(x)

f″(x)=x(−sinx)+cosx+cosx

Now f″(x)+f(x)+tcosx=0

⇒x(−sinx)+cosx+cosx+xsinx+tcosx=0

⇒2cosx+tcosx=0

⇒cosx(t+2)=0

⇒t+2=0,t=−2

22. With 3.5 as the initial value, the Newton-Raphson method is used to get the root of the equation x^{2}-13=0. After one cycle, the approximation is **(GATE CS 2010)**

**Solution) **3.607

In __Newton-Raphson’s method__, We use the following formula to get the next value of f(x). f'(x) is the derivative of f(x).

f(x) = x2-13

f'(x) = 2x

Applying the above formula, we get

Next x = 3.5 - (3.5*3.5 - 13)/2*3.5

Next x = 3.607
