In Quiz Topics List 1, it says algorithmic techniques: Guess and check and Successive approximation.
Both are general types of the others?
Like Linear and Bisection search are examples of guess and check?
And is NewtonRaphson (Newton’s method) an example of Successive approximation ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Newton's Method is an example of successive approximation. Successive Approximation itself is getting closer to an answer until it is within an acceptable distance of the real answer( shown by epsilon in the lectures).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Newton's Method is both sucessive approximation and guess and check right? Each iteration you generate a guess and check whether it is within an acceptable distance of the real answer.
