Hello,

to #3:

You are supposed to know the Raphson-Newton formula:

If you are looking for the solutions of T(x) = 0 where T(x) is a term in x and you have found an initial approximate value for a solution then the next approximate value is:

With your problem:

Start with

Code:`x_0 1`

x_1 0.70773205

x_2 0.677232264

x_3 0.676832564

x_4 0.676832494
