If x=a is an approximation for the equation f(x)=0, then is a closer approximation, establish the formula as a method of successive approximations to the reciprocal of N. I don't know where to begin. Thank you

As an iterative formula, Newton's method takes the form, . To use the method to find the reciprocal of the number , you have to solve the equation in which case Substitute this into the RHS of the formula and simplify.
how did you arrive at the ? can you give me like the reason, logic behind it? thanks!
