Unformatted text preview: (Secant and Newton). For Newton’s Method, use p = 4. For the Secant Method, use p = 6 and p 1 = 4. (c) What is your best estimate for p , the location of the maximum? (d) Compare the three algorithms using the following two tables. Table 1: Approximation p n versus iteration number n Iteration n Bisection Secant Newton Table 2: Absolute error  p np  versus iteration number n Iteration n Bisection Secant Newton (e) What happens if you attempt to approximate the maximum by starting Newton’s Method with p = 6? (2) (Newton versus Secant) Bradie, p. 113, #12. 1...
