The book has three chapters and an Appendix on different methods to calculate approximate areas of plain regions enclosed by curves. Tutorials, Tests and Examination Papers of different Universities where the author taught the course at the faculties of Engineering and Business Studies are provided. A short bibliography of books on the subject and alphabetical index of the topics covered are given in the end.The first chapter accounts the different methods for numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations. Picard''s, Taylor''s, Euler''s, Runge-Kutta, Milne''s and Adams-Bashforth''s methods are given. The problems of curve fittings and spline fittings are explained in the second chapter. The 'Gaussian method of least squares'' for the 'curve of best fit'' is included. The concepts of Linear Programming are studied in the third chapter. Solution(s) of linear relations obtained analytically are also discussed by graphical methods. General problems of Linear Programming (LPP), canonical and standard forms of LPP and Simplex methods are discussed. Trapezoidal rule and Simpson''s rules for approximate areas of plain regions are included in the Appendix
