Take up to ten Newton steps. - Use a ''​for''​ loop to perform the Newton-search iteration. Take up to ten Newton steps. - - Use a ''​if''​ statement inside the ''​for''​ loop to test if either $|f(x)| < \epsilon$ or $|dx| < \epsilon$. If so, use a ''​break''​ statement to terminate the iteration and return from the function. For our purposes ''​1e-07''​ is a decent choice for the value of tolerance $\epsilon$. ​ + - Use a ''​if''​ statement inside the ''​for''​ loop to test if either $|f(x)| < 2 \epsilon$ or $|dx| < \epsilon$. If so, use a ''​break''​ statement to terminate the iteration and return from the function. For our purposes ''​1e-07''​ is a decent choice for the value of tolerance $\epsilon$. ​ ​ ​
