## Introduction

Some equations are too complicated to solve. Yet, many equations have real numbers as roots instead of integers. This makes it impossible to find finite values of their roots. Therefore, we use a different approach with such equations - an approach that consists in finding approximate values that get very close to the exact roots. In this tutorial, we are going to discuss some of these methods, known as iterative methods for solving equations.
