Graph Original of Equation y=3x^5-3x+1

Extracts from this document...


This is a graph of the original equation, in the form x = g (x), I am investigating:

0 = 3x^5 - 3x + 1

The Rearrangement method, firstly, draws a vertical line between the 2 curves. When it reaches the second curve, another line is drawn horizontally. This carries on until a value of the function is calculated to the required accuracy. However, for this method to work, the gradient

This reading says ‘Overflow’. This means that it can not be calculated using this method. As seen and stated in the graph above, the lines drawn are getting further apart. This is also shown in the ‘▲x’ column in the table of results, where the answers get larger and larger.

    The Gradient Function

    5 star(s)

    It is clear enough that this works for all the values of n previously proven, but now I will attempt to try and prove this for fractional and negative powers to prove that this formula is correct. If there is irrefutable evidence to support this gradient function for xn, I will investigate different values of "a" in axn-1.

    As a cultural historian of 17th and 18th century France, Darnton is keen to strip away the accretions to the story that have become part of the tale, and to get back to the story that French rural peasants told to each other in the 17th and 18th centuries.

    I am doing this to find what C is worth. A + B + C = 12 4 + 6 + C = 12 10 + C = 12 C = 12 - 10 C = 2 F (n) = an� + bn + c F (n)

  2. The Gradient Fraction

    I will now incorporate more graphs into my investigation. I will also start to solve different graphs by the Tan ? method. This method is very similar to the Triangle method. Here is an example how to use the Tan ?

    In general, we can break a line segment into N1 self-similar pieces, each with magnification factor N. The two-dimensional square can be broken down into N2 self-similar pieces, with a magnification factor of N. However, we can break the cube into N3 self-similar pieces, each of which has magnification factor of N.
