Your work can be viewed below, but no changes can be made. 1. [SCalcCC2 4.8.06.] 2/2 points Use Newton's method with the specified initial approximation x 1 and find x 3 , the third approximation to the root of the given equation. (Give your answer to two decimal places.) x 3 - x 2 - 1 = 0 x 1 = 1 1.62 1.62 2. [SCalcCC2 4.8.08.] 1/1 points Use Newton's method to approximate the given number correct to eight decimal places. 2.75348703 2.75348703 3. [SCalcCC2 4.8.10.] 2/2 points Use Newton's method to approximate the indicated root of the equation correct to six decimal places. The root of x 4 + x - 4 = 0 in the interval [1,2] 1.283781666
