Use Newtons Method to find the solution accurate to within 10^-5 of the following problem.
How do I know when to stop and how do I find P0 and P1?
i suppose you mean the initial guess?and how do I find P0 and P1?
first note that you have
so a good initial guess would be one where is close to . in fact, it is an equivalent problem to solve . would be easier to run Newton's method on it too. you can use a graph to come up with a guess
Hope that helps
