In this lesson, we will learn how to solve quadratic equations using an iterative process.

Q1:

The equation of the following graph is 𝑦=𝑥−8𝑥+8. Use the iterative formula 𝑥=8−8𝑥, starting with 𝑥=7, to find the largest root of the equation 𝑥−8𝑥+8=0 to 4 decimal places.

Q2:

The equation of the following graph is 𝑦=𝑥+3𝑥−9. Use the iterative formula 𝑥=9𝑥−3, starting with 𝑥=−5, to find the negative root of the equation 𝑥+3𝑥−9=0 to 4 decimal places.

Q3:

The equation of the following graph is 𝑦=−𝑥−2𝑥+7. Use the iterative formula 𝑥=7𝑥+2, starting with 𝑥=2, to find the positive root of the equation −𝑥−2𝑥+7=0 to 4 decimal places.
