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)

    I shall also see whether the gradient function I shall come up with corresponds to nx n-1. If nx^n-1 is correct for all positive values of n, even non integers, I predict that the gradient function for x 1/2 is 1/2x-0.5.

    4 Substitute A = 4 into equation 5 I am doing this to find what B is worth. 3a + b = 18 3 x 4 + b = 18 12 + b = 18 B = 18 - 12 B = 6 Substitute A = 4 and B = 6 into equation 1.

  1. The Gradient Fraction

    Then similar like the Triangle method, you need to draw the 'x' and 'y' differences. The purpose of this method is to find the angle in the right angled triangle. It is a trigonometry method you will need to use.

    I went and inserted the values for day 0 and day 28 and developed the model shown above. There are no modifications to this function because it mirrors the results almost exactly (as shown in the graph below) so I did not to modify it to create a better fit.

  1. Three ways of reading The Bloody Chamber.

    So, offering a simple account of its 'mythic' meaning as being Freudian, we can identify its SIGNIFIED as some sort of phallic concept. The second level SIGN is therefore a 'phallicised' or 'Freudianised' key. The first and second levels of semiological analysis provide two ways of reading The Bloody Chamber.

  2. Numerical Method (Maths Investigation)

    The Newton-Raphson Method failed when it comes to a graph that will push the tangent to the curve away from the domain. There's a graph below to illustrate what I have point out. The curve in the Gph NRM-04 has the equation = 0, and it has only one root at interval of [0,0.5].

    Method: Newton Raphson Using the Newton Raphson method, it took 4 iterations to reach a conclusive answer to 5 decimal places of 0.337735 �0.000005. Method: Rearrangement The original equation has to be rearranged for this method.

    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.
