    Plato pm me with an email address and I will send you a Powerpoint and a .pdf of some worksheets that will help your understanding.
    Oh hang on...sorry, I am being dim. :facepalm:

    I already identified the two fixed points and determined that -5/6 was the only attracting fixed point. And since x=0 is in its interval of attraction, an iteration starting with x=0 must converge to -5/6

    Simple as that, right?

    :getmecoat:

    I think I was overcomplicating things!
