Write a computer program that will solve the initial value problem dy/dx = f(x, y) subjected to y(x0) = y0 by classical fourth order Runge-Kutta method.
Inputs: x0, y0, f(x, y), h = step-size, and n = number of steps. Using the code obtain the solutions of the ODE
Compare each numerically obtained solution with corresponding analytical solution by plotting them in a single figure.

Yes, the user knows that. He will input the function interms of x, y and z. Like in this particular case user will input g(x,y,z) = sin 2x -0.2z-y = dz/dx

Why aren't you using this to update z:
z(i+1) = z(i) + (1/6)*(l1+(2*l2)+(2*l3)+l4);
