The aim of this paper is to compare the relative accuracies between predictor-corrector methods, Adams-Bashforth method and Adams-Moulton method for solving initial value Differential Equations numerically to observe which methods tend to function well in which step-size brackets as well as which ones provide the minimum amount of error when compared to the true value. The statistical analysis shows that there is always a small amount of error present using Heun’s method; however, the error is rarely large enough unless the function is rapidly rising.
