In this video, you are introduced to the method of iteration in order to solve an equation.

To demonstrate this method, the following example is used.


  1. Find one root of the equation x^3-3x+1=0 by iteration taking the first approximation x_1=1.5 giving the answer to 2 decimal places.

How it works:

In this video, you are shown how iteration converges or diverges away from a root by considering the intersection of the graph y=x and y=f(x)
