Summary:Relates the practical problem of 'getting answers' to some ideas on functions. Shows how to get very approximate roots, and indicates how they can be improved. The idea of an iterative process is introduced in connection with a problem at the British Aircraft Corporation, and this technique is put to the test by exploring various rearrangements. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
