Newton-Raphson iteration formula for finding $\sqrt[3]{c}$, where $c > 0$ is $x_{n+1}=\frac{2x_n^3 + \sqrt[3]{c}}{3x_n^2}$ $x_{n+1}=\frac{2x_n^3 - \sqrt[3]{c}}{3x_n^2}$ $x_{n+1}=\frac{2x_n^3 + c}{3x_n^2}$ $x_{n+1}=\frac{2x_n^3 - c}{3x_n^2}$

The Newton-Raphson method is to be used to find the root of the equation $f(x)=0$ where $x_o$ is the initial approximation and $f’$ is the derivative of $f$. The method converges always only if $f$ is a polynomial only if $f(x_o) <0$ none of the above

A piecewise linear function $f(x)$ is plotted using thick solid lines in the figure below (the plot is drawn to scale). If we use the Newton-Raphson method to find the roots of \(f(x)=0\) using \(x_0, x_1,\) and \(x_2\) respectively as initial guesses, the roots obtained would be ... and 0.6 respectively 0.6, 0.6, and 1.3 respectively 1.3, 1.3, and 0.6 respectively 1.3, 0.6, and 1.3 respectively
