Could someone please so me how Newton's Method is used in Numerical Analysis? My teacher is doing a horrible job of teaching it and he skips a lot of steps.
Newtons Method:
X(n+1) = x(n) - f(x(n))/f'(x(n)) (n) is a subcript to x.

It is a method to find the solutions to a function using the derivative and the original function only
For example consider
We have to make an initial guess..lets say 2
So we set up our first iteration
C is just because I dont have my calculator
So then
and then obviously
and as the iterations will yield that zero of th function
