1) "Show that the problem of finding the cube root of 70 is equivalent to finding a root of (x^3 - 70 = 0). Approximate this root using the Newton Raphson Method. Choose 4 as the initial estimate. Continue the approximation until two successive approximations, rounded to 3 decimal places, are the same."

I will be 1) seriously impressed and 2) very gratefull if anyone can explain this to me.
