Use Newton's method to approximate the root of the equation x^3=33x+66 that belongs to the interval (4,. Start with x0=8 and perform three iterations, i.e., find x1, x2, and x3. Calculate lx0?x1l lx1?x2l , and lx3?x2l . Answers: 1. Use Newton's method xn+1=xn? f(xn) / f (xn) where the function f has a positive leading coefficient so that f(x)= x^333*x66 . x1=? lx1?x0l=? x2=? lx2?x1l= ? x3=? lx3?x2l=?

First, express the equation as a function equal to zero: Calculate the function's first derivative: Newton's method gives us the recursion: With we find: 66}{3\(8^211\)}=\frac{1090}{159}" />
