As a newbie, i like to ask a simple question. I am trying to impliment a newton-rapson method for a simple equation as an example. I create a different matlab function from main function for the equation and call it inside the main function. However when I try to call the functions derivative it gives an error. I am aimin to not to take the derivative inside the main function for optimization concerns. I did try different methods but they give errors all the same.
if nargin<2, x0=0; TC=10^-4;end
fprintf('After %d iterations an approximate root is %f',i,x(i));
