Recently in Calculus I we went over "Newton's Method", which, for those of you are as familiar with it as I am, is used for approximation in functions. At least, that's what I think it's used for. I'm not really sure. Needless to say, I'm kind of lost on this homework assignment even though there isn't that much to do this time (for once). It's just difficult because Newton's Method is complicated. I don't remember being introduced to it back in high school or in Survey of Calculus last year.

Can there ever be a math assignment that takes less than six hours? Please God, please.

: Ok, so Newton's Method isn't that bad. I just have problems with tangent equations.

: Apparently there can be such an assingment when there are only 11 problems and it's really not as hard as you thought it was.
