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.
