Can anyone explain me these 4 steps
How
Dy=£y

Re: 4 steps of approximation

In numerical analysis you would see lots of relationships between delta x and dx. In fact, we often replace the differential with a finite difference. But the rest of that is still a hopeless bit of jargon to me. For one thing, you need to define  δ.
