Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A 2Mb pdf file showing a complete Mathematica solution was uploaded this evening to the following web site: http://www.calcentral.com/~hix7exro/INewton_3v4.pdf There will be a 10 to 20 second delay while the file is downloading. My results differ from yours. But I'm just one of those zombies that hang around a dead and decaying web site and one cannot expect much from them.....
