Homework 3, Solution Sketches Math 471, Fall 2007 Assigned: Friday, September 24, 2007 Due: Friday, October 1, 2007 (1) (Newton versus Secant) Bradie, p. 113, #12. The sequence of iterates generated by the secant method follows. ======================================== n p(n) |e(n)| ======================================== 0 -2.00000000000000 0.91222917848440 1 -3.00000000000000 0.08777082151560 2 -2.83333333333333 0.07889584515106 3 -2.90792838874680 0.00430078973759 4 -2.91244964042237 0.00022046193798 5 -2.91222858559119 0.00000059289320 6 -2.91222917840283 0.00000000008157 7 -2.91222917848440 0.00000000000000 ======================================== It takes five iterations and six function evaluations to obtain p 6 , which has an error of - 8 . 16 · 10 - 11 . In this case, Secant is comparable with Newton. 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
