Please show that when n=1, Newtons method given by:

x^k=x^(k-1)-(J(x^(k-1))^-1)(F(x^(k-1)) for k>=1

reduces to the familiar Newton's method given by:

P_n=P_n-1 - f(p_n-1)/f'(P_n-1) for n>=1

Note:

^-1 is inverse

J is the jacobian matrix

The top equation is called newton's method for non linear systems. x is a vector. F(x_1,...,x_n)=(f_1(x_1,...,x_n),f_2(x_1,...,x_n),...,f_n(x_1,...,x_n)).
