Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ANSWER: f(x) = 11+x^2 f'(x) = 2 x g(x) = x  ( f(x)/f'(x) ) = x(11+x^2)/(2 x) Initial value = 3.2 Number of iteration = 30 The iteration sequence of g(x) : {3.2,3.31875,3.31663,3.31662} It took 3 steps to converge within 0.01 of each other , without counting the initial value of 3.2 The iteration sequence seems to converge to 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the meaning of iteration and how to show the table?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to solve your question you need to the follow procedure : 1) find a g(x) 2) apply g(3.2) , then the result will be applied again g(g(3.2)), and so forth ; this depends on the number of iterations that you want. This will give you a list ( the table)
