1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data y=[(1+y^2)^1.5]/[2(y+sqrt 3)^2]; solve for y 2. Relevant equations see above 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to use algebra to solve it, but I can't. The text book says it can be solved numerically or by iteration. By numberically I think it means algebraically. But I don't know how to do it that way. I don't know what it means by iteration. Can you guys give me an idea of how to do it both ways?
