    Newton Raphson Question

    Are there any ways to make an educated initial guess when trying to find the zero of a function?

    I've been working on some problems that require me to make initial guesses but it's so much work! just wondering if there are any techniques or whatnot that can help me cut down some of the work by making a better guesstimate
