**1. In this question, f is the function f(x) = 1/4x^2 - 1/8x - 5/8**

The first part of the question asked to find the fixed points, which I got to 3.65 and 0.85, and to classify them as attracting, repelling or indifferent, which I did, however, the second part asks

**2. Use the gradient criterion to determine an interval of attraction for one of the fixed points of f.**

I haven't got an attempt at this to show, because I don't really understand the process, and that's what I'm hoping to get help with. I'm not looking the answer, more the process. That way, hopfully I will be able to answer it myself in future.

Thanks in advance.
