an approximate value to begin and work best when you are not near a max or min
point (since slope is used and slopes near 0 will send you far from your
original guess / approximation). Assuming you want the solution more than the
process, the TIgraphing calculators can be used with a SOLVE button. Enter
the polynomial, find a solution at a nearby xintercept, and ask for a
solution. It will numerically approximate each one for you.
