  1. let f(x) = x^3 - 6x^2 + 13x - 9
    f'(x) = 3x^2 - 12x + 13

    xnew = x - f(x)/f'(x)
    = x - (x^3 - 6x^2 + 13x - 9)/(3x^2 - 12x + 13)
    = (3x^3 - 12x^2 + 13x - x^3 + 6x^2 - 13x + 9)/(3x^2 - 12x + 13)
    = (2x^3 - 6x + 9)/(3x^2 - 12x + 13)

    using my calculator, with an initial guess of x = 1

    x ----- newx
    1 , 1.25
    1.25 , 1.3139...
    1.3139.., 1.3176604
    1.3176604 , 1.317672196
    1.31762196 , 1.317672197

    Wow, looks like I had 6 decimal accuracy in the 2nd last iteration.
