Repeatedly solving an equation to obtain a result using the result from the previous calculation, is called 'iteration'.The types of iteration examined here with worked examples:direct/fixed point iteration, bisection method,the Newton-Raphson iterative method.

Algebra : Iteration
IntroductionRepeatedly solving an equation to obtain a result using the result from the previouscalculation, is called '
iteration
'. The procedure is used in mathematics to give a moreaccurate answer when the original data is only approximate.Problems usually involve finding the root of an equation when only an approximate value isgiven for where the curve crosses an axis.Direct/Fixed Point Iterationmethod:1. rearrange the given equation to make the highest power of 
 x
the subject2. find the power root of each side, leaving
 x
on its own on the left3. the LHS
 x
becomes
 x
n+1
4. the RHS
 x
becomes
 x
n
 The equation is now in its iterative form.We start by working out
 x
2
from the given value
 x
1
.
 x
3
is worked out using the value
 x
2
in the equation.
 x
4
is worked out using the value
 x
3
and so on.

Iteration by Bisectionmethod:1. reduce the interval where the root lies into two equal parts2. decide in which part the solution resides3. repeat the process until a consistent answer is achieved for the degree of accuracyrequiredExampleFind correct to 3 d.p. a root of the equation
