    Iterative Formula

    Solve the equation 2ln5x - 3 = 0, giving your awnser to three decimal places.

    Struggling to derive a formula, cant say im confident in what I have derived, also how do you choose a suitable value to start of with.

    $\displaystyle
    \begin{gathered}
    2\ln 5x - 3 = 0 \hfill \\
    \Leftrightarrow x = \frac{{e^{\frac{3}
    {2}} }}
    {5} \hfill \\
    \end{gathered}
