Unformatted text preview: x 2 = x 1 – f(x 1 ) f ’(x 1 ) Repeated application of this process is called Newton’s Method. Each successive application of this procedure is called an iteration . Newton’s Method for Approximating Newton’s Method for Approximating the Zeros of a Function the Zeros of a Function 1. Make an initial estimate x 1 that is “close to” c. (A graph is helpful.) 2. Determine a new approximation x n+1 = x n – f(x n ) f ’(x n ) 3. If x nx n+1 is within the desired accuracy, let x n+1 serve as the final approximation. Otherwise, return to step 2 and calculate a new approximation. Joke Time Joke Time Who was the dancing VicePresident in 2000? Algore rhythum What does a lumberjack do to trees? axioms...
