### Introduction:

Introduction:From NewtonRaphson Method we know, Xn+1=Xn-[f(x)/f'(x)].
Here we consider three functions one to generate the given equation, other to generate the derivative of the given equation. And the other to find out the root of the equation by using Newton Raphson Method. For this here we passes two values given by the users.

### input:

a and b, two arbitrary values will be given by the user.

### output:

The root of the equation.

### CODE---->

``// c program for implementation of Newton Raphson method to solve this equation: 2x^3-6x^2+6x-1#include#include//function for the given equationfloat fun(float x){	return(2*(pow(x,3))-6*(pow(x,2))+6*x-1);}//function for the derivative of given function that is 6x^2-12x+6float diff(float x){	return(6*(pow(x,2))-12*x+6);}//function to find out the root of the equationvoid raphson(float a,float b){	float temp=0,k,h;	k=(a+b);	k=k/2;	if(fun(a)*fun(b)>=0)	{		printf("\nWrong input");	}	else	{		do		{   printf("\nXn = %f ",k);			temp=k;			printf(" f(Xn) = %f ",fun(k));			printf(" f'(Xn) = %f ",diff(k));			h=(fun(k)/diff(k));			printf(" h = %f ",h);			k=k-h;		}while(fabs(temp-k)>=0.001);		printf("\nThe ans is: %f",k);	}}int main(){   int a,b;	printf("\nEnter two values: ");	scanf("%d %d",&a,&b);	raphson(a,b);	return 0;}``

### Discussion:

The Newton-Raphson method is an iterative approach to finding the roots of some differentiable function f(x)f(x). The method is advantageous, because it is simple to implement, and when it works, it approaches x∗quadratically and is relatively efficient. Basically, Newton's method works best when applied to find non-repeated roots of a differentiable function, because it guarantees quadratic convergence. It require the derivatives of f(x)), if complicated then this method will tend to fail. It require very accurate initial value or initial guess Xo. Must be near the root you need to approximate.
