 1. ITERATION Also known as successive approximation which is the process of finding the roots of the number. Suppose we need to find the square root of 18 i.e. √ (18) but 18 lies between 4 and 5 it means 42 = 16, less 2 from18 and 52 = 25, 7 more than 18 that’s why it’s said to lie between 4 and 5 Then x1= first approximation and x2 = second approximation then: X1= 4 and X2 = 5Take the average say X3 = (x1 + x2) / 2 that is (4 + 5)/2 = 4.5 then X3 = 4.5.Take the average again say X4 = (x1 + x3) /2 that is (4 + 4.5)/2 = 4.25 then X4 = 4.25 Therefore by two iteration thesquare root of 18 is 4.25. In general the square root of positive number N can be calculated from the iterative formula Xr+1 =1/2(Xr+ N/xr) where Xr is the first approximationsquare root of the given positive number N. e.g. if given to find √(27) then Xr is 5. Qn: find the square roots of the following using iterative formula. a). 145, b). 47 c).65 d).82 HOWTO FIND THE FORMULAR FOR FINDING ROOTS OF EQUATION Example: Establish the formula to solve the equation x3 – 5x – 3 = 0 for the roots which lie between x = 2 and x = 3. Solution: Make x the subject of the formula using x3 that will be x3 = 5x + 3, and by dividing by x2 the formula will be x = 5/x + 3/x2……….. (I) Also make x the subject of the formula using 5x that will 5x = x3 – 3 and dividing by 5 both sides the formula will become x = x3/5 – 3/5………. (II)Then we test for converges and diverges in each equation above, if f ́(x) < 1 the formula will be converges and if f ́(x) > 1 the formula will be diverges, but we need converges. How to test for converges anddiverges. Find the average of the two roots given above i.e. x = 2 and x = 3 then the average is 2.5find the derivative of the equations above i.e. eqn. (I) will be f ́(x) = 5x2 – 6x3 then substitute the value of x by average above say x = 2.5 then by substitution f’(2.5) = 0.835, that is less than 1 then the formula is converges and there is no need for testing another because the converges equation is already obtained. There fore the iterative formula is Xn+ 1 = 5/Xn + 3/X2nfrom the first equation. To find the roots we start by x1 = 2.5 in order to get X2 i.e. X2 = 5/2.5 + 3/ (2.5)2 then continue up to 3 or 4 iteration.

 Hallo friends, to me mathematics is my best subject because i love it if you see my results you will see mathematics 100 percent why? Because I love it and following all the rules and regulations concerning mathematics that's all I wanted to say about mathematics to me byeeeeee friends love you aaalllll!.
