Since the advent of 'derivatives' math historians and teachers assert that only by the agency of cartesian system and infinitesimal calculus modern mathematicians could create high-order algorithms for approximating roots, and that ancient were not able to do that because the only tool they had was Arithmetic: The science of Quantity.

However, beneath the light of the new extremely simple arithmetical methods for approximating roots with any desired convergence rate, those assertions become absolutely false.
