Numerical Analysis - an area of mathematics that uses various numerical methods to find numerical approximations to mathematical problems, while also analysing those methods to see if there is any way to reduce the numerical error involved in using them, thus resulting in more reliable numerical methods that give more accurate approximations than previously.

### What is the purpose of data analysis in Excel?

Spreadsheets are for numerical analysis and manipulation. So in
using Excel you would be doing a lot of analysis on numbers, like
totalling them, averaging them, making charts from them, trying to
determine trends from them, doing other calculations from them,
comparing them and so on. Analysis of data is fundamental to
computers. Spreadsheets do a lot of it with numerical data.

### What are the differences between numerical methods and numerical analysis?

A numerical method is the same as an algorithm, the steps
required to solve a numerical problem. Algorithms became very
important as computers were increasingly used to solve problems. It
was no longer necessary to solve complex mathematical problems with
a single closed form equation. See link on algorithm. According to
Wikipedia: Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms for
the problems of continuous mathematics (as distinguished
from discrete mathematics). See link on numerical analysis. An
expanded definition offered by K.E. Atkinson is:...
