# Numerical solution of equations – Edexcel FP1

#### 2. Numerical solution of equations – Edexcel Further Pure Mathematics 1 (FP1)

What students need to learn:
Equations of the form $$f(x) = 0$$ solved numerically by:
(i)      interval bisection,
(ii)     linear interpolation,
(iii)    the Newton-Raphson process.

$$f(x)$$ will only involve functions used in C1 and C2.

For the Newton-Raphson process, the only differentiation required will be as defined in unit C1.
