    Guess x0 (needs to be reasonably close for convergence) Then first iteration x1 = x0 - f(x0)/f'(x0) and repeat to desired accuracy.

    Usually the function provides you with enough info to make a guess at the root

    Yes, just iterate, successive iterates will come closer and closer to the root (if it converges)
