`3cos(x) = x + 1` Use Newton's method to find all roots of the equation correct to six decimal places.
To solve using Newton's method apply the formula,
Plug in f(x) and f'(x) in the formula,
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...
