e^x - x^2/2=0
2e^x - x^2 = 0
let y = 2e^x - x^2
y' = 2e^x - 2x
newx = x - y/y'
= x -(2e^x-x^2)/(2e^x - 2x)
which simplified to
(2xe^x - x^2 - 2e^x)/(2e^x - 2x)
make a chart with
x ---- newx , then replacing x with newx in the next line
x = -.901201 correct to 4 decimals after 3 iterations, not bad
LS = e^x - x^2/2
= .406081662 - .406081621
Could u please show how u got -.9034 too? Thanks!!!
