## Newton's Method for Finding Roots of Equations

Suppose we have a function \(f(x)\) and we want to
compute values of \(x\) for which \(f(x)=0\). These values
of \(x\) are called the **roots** of \(f(x)\).

We can compute the roots using Newton's Method, which utilizes the derivative of the function to iteratively compute the roots of the function.

Newton's method begins with an initial guess. It evaluates the derivative …
