Use Newton's method to solve the equation sec x = 4 in the interval x in (0, pi/2).
In other words, use Newton's Method to compute arcsec(4).
(You need to make a good initial guess for the root otherwise Newton's method will probably fail. Please justify how you came up with your initial guess. Stop the iteration process
when you are correct to 4 decimal places.)
