How many iterations and how many function evaluations are needed by the secant method to approximate this zero to a similar accuracy ? Take p = 2 aand p 1 = 3. (2) (Finding Multiple Roots, p. 105 # 11; p. 125 # 14, # 15) (a) The function f ( x ) = 27 x 4 + 162 x 3 180 x 2 + 62 7 has a zero at x = 1 / 3. Perform ten iterations of Newton’s method on this function, starting with p = 0. What is the apparent order of convergence of the sequence of approximations? What is thethe apparent order of convergence of the sequence of approximations?...
