This question concerns the Newton-Raphson method. It can find an accurate solution of an equation, but often needs

a good starting-point. The following function has three zeros: f (x) = (7/25) x+ cos x. The function has two other real roots, between 0 and 10. Find initial values x0 for which the Newton-Raphson method approaches each of the other two roots. Enter the other two roots accurate to four decimal places, in any order, separated by a comma, e.g. 1.1111, 5.5556.
