Root Finding Function

Newton Raphson’s method is a method used to find successively better approximations of the roots of a real valued function.

False Position method is used to refer to basic trial and error methods of solving problems by substituting test values for the unknown quantities. Like the bisection method, the false position method starts with two points a0 and b0 such that f(a0) and f(b0) are of opposite signs, which implies by the intermediate value theorem that the function f has a root in the interval [a0b0], assuming continuity of the function f
