`3cos(x)=x+1`
`f(x)=x+1-3cos(x)=0`
To solve using Newton's method apply the formula,
`x_(n+1)=x_n-f(x_n)/(f'(x_n))`
`f'(x)=1+3sin(x)`
Plug in f(x) and f'(x) in the formula,
`x_(n+1)=x_n-(x_n+1-3cos(x_n))/(1+3sin(x_n))`
See the attached graph to get the initial values of x.
When f(x)=0 , the values of x are near The curve has three x values x `~~` 0.8 , -1.8 , -3.6
Use these three values for...
