Sp 95 Exam 1B Name __________________ EGN 3420 SHOW ALL WORK! Problem 1 (25 pts) Consider the function f(x) = 1/x. A) Find the 3rd order truncated Taylor Series Expansion of f(x) about the pt x 0 = 1/2. B) Use the 3rd order truncated series to estimate f(x) when x = 0.6 to 3 places after the decimal point. C) Find the true per cent relative error in the answer to Part B) to 2 places after the decimal point.

Sp 95 Exam 1B Name __________________ EGN 3420 SHOW ALL WORK! Problem 2 (25 pts) Given the function 3 16 ( ) f x x x = - use the Newton Raphson Method to fill in the table below. Round all calculations to 4 places after the decimal point, except the last column which should be rounded to 2 places after the decimal point. Stop when the magnitude of the approximate relative error is less than 1% or after 5 iterations,
