1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Name disadvantages of the Successive Method vs Newtons for solving nonlinear equations? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I went all through the textbook and this is all I could find on the successive method disadvantages but these are not compared to Newtons. Successive Method- May diverge Recursion equation formulation that guarantees conversion not obvious Performance depends on recursion equation What am I missing or am I correct?
