Hey all, I seek to find where the derivative of a nth order polynomial is at a 0, so far I have used secant method to find it, which works, but issue is is that that returns only one root, sliding the interval could work, but then itd always point to the edge of the interval, any help appreciated. Base factoring wont work above 5th order poly's,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
