Use Newton's method to approximate the x value of the point near x=3
of 2 functions

1. f(x) = 3 - x

2. g(x) = 1/(x^2) + 1

Do this problem for complete iterations to get an answer of about .001 of the real value

hint let H(x) = f(x) - g(x)

use Newton's method to approximate the x value of the point near x=3 of 2 functions

f(x) = 3 - x g(x) = 1/(x 2 ) + 1

do this problem for complete iterations to get an answer of about .001 of the real value

hint: let H(x) = f(x) - g(x)

Solution : Let H(x) = f(x) - g(x) = 2 - x - ( 1/ x 2 )

Newton's Method in Graph

Use Newton's Method to approximate the zero(s) of the function. Continue the process until two successive approximations differ by less than 0.001. Then find the zero(s) using a graphing utility and compare the results

f(x)=x-2sqrt(x+1).
