Let f be a differentiable function defined for all x. Starting NewtonÂ’s method at a point c where f'(c) = 0 is: a. It could work if we are lucky. b. A good idea, because x c is a critical point so NewtonÂ’s method will lead us straight to the root. c. Is usually a bad idea because we might get stuck. d. Both (b) and (c).Let f be a differentiable function defined for all x. Starting NewtonÂ’s method at a point c where f'(c) = 0 is: a. It could work if we are lucky. b.

Answer: D. Being lucky means that c is already the root of the function....
