We want to find the solution to...
where .
We also have,
Newtons Method (aka Newton-Rapson Method) is
Which for our problem is...
So we get...
Etc...
I'll leave it to you to compute each
can someone show me how this is done.. the lnx function has me a bit confuse
lnx = 4-x
starting with 2.9 as s first approximation to this roots use newton-rapson method to evaluate successive approximations to this root to 2 decimal places.
