## Homework Statement

Solve the aforementioned system of nonlinear equations using newton's method. write a program to carry out the calculations (it must use gauss elimination).

Use the values 0-3 for [itex]x_{1}^{(0)}, x_{2}^{(0)}[/itex] (ie. 16 data sets total).

## The Attempt at a Solution

So i have hit my first roadblock: For [itex]x_{1}^{(0)}=0, x_{2}^{(0)}=0[/itex] this makes absolutely no sense.

You end up with [itex]0 * Δx_{1}^{(0)} + 0 * Δx_{2}^{(0)} = 1[/itex] which is impossible. What the heck?
