4. (a) f ( x ) = x 3 + x - 1 , f 0 ( x ) = 3 x 2 + 1 , C 1 = 0 Use Newton’s method: C n +1 = C n - f ( C n ) f 0 ( C n ) . Then, C 2 = C 1 - f ( C 1 ) f 0 ( C 1 ) = 0 - f (0) f 0 (0) = 0 - - 1 1 = 1 C 3 = C 2 - f ( C 2 ) f 0 ( C 2 ) = 1 - f (1) f 0 (1) = 1 - 1 4 = 3 4 C 4 = C 3 - f ( C 3 ) f 0 ( C 3 ) = 3 4 - f ( 3 4 ) f 0 ( 3 4 ) 0 . 686 4.
