    \[x^3 -9x +28 = 0\] my answer is -4 for both x2 and x3.. can anyone verify this?

    \[x2 = x1 - \frac{ f(x1) }{ f'(x1) }\] \[x3 = x2 - \frac{ f(x2) }{ f'(x2) }\]

    which is equal to -4, and repeats for x3

    wait there is a power next to the -4 on the bottom

    hmm but i got x1=0 so should'nt the x2=0-F(0)/(f'(0))

    x1 is already given to be x1 = -4

    do you get -4 for both x2 and x3 now when you try it?
