    51. Solve the system:

    x^2 + xy^3 = 9

    3x^2y - y^3 = 4

    using Newton's method for nonlinear system. Use each of the initial guesses:

    (x_0, y_0) = (1.2, 2.5), (-2, 2.5), (-1.2, -2.5), (2, -2.5)

    Observe which root to which the method converges, the number or iterates required, and the speed of convergence.
