Increasing the number of points in the x vector will result in a more accurate depiction of the function.

By the time n = 50 the rate of change is within approximately 0.02 meters. Above this number of iterations the change is extremely minimal. The difference between n = 50 and n = 1000 is only 0.1956 meters. Math 344 Lecture 3 Homework Exercise 3.3 Bob Astrom The following graph contains data from hand calculations using Newton's Method. The data represents the error and percent error of the first three iteration The function under consideration is: f(x) = x^3 ‐ 4 Iteration X1 x2 x3 f'(x) = 2x^2 Value 1.6660 1.5911 1.5874 Error 0.0793 0.0037 0.0000 Percent Error 5.0 1.0 0.0 ...
