Problem 4. Newton's method This example shows the dependence of the convergence rate on the initial guess. As an initial guess gets closer to a real solution, the number of iterations decreases. Also different initial guesses give different solutions. Initial guesses are 1.20000 2.50000 Tolerance = 1.000e-006 Number of iteration = 5 Solutions are 1.33636 1.75424
