# Separation Processes MCQ’s – Newton-Raphson Method

1 - Question

The Newton-Raphson method of finding roots of nonlinear equations falls under the category of which method?
a) Bracketing
b) Random
c) Open
d) Graphical
Explanation: It is an open method since we have to guess the square root.

2 - Question

What is the formula of finding the square root of R from equation x2- R=0?
a) Xi+1= 0.5(xi + R/xi)
b) Xi+1= 0.5(xi + R/2)
c) Xi= 0.5(xi + R/xi)
d) Xi+1= 0.5(xi + xi)
Explanation: The formula of finding the square root of R from equation x2– R=0 is Xi+1= 0.5(xi + R/xi).
