# C3 coursework Failure of the Rearrangement method watch

1. Does the failure of the rearrangement method mean that the numbers always diverge to infinity? Or can it converge to a root again, but this time to a different root?
2. both of those situations would count as failures

thought so. It's just all the examples I've seen, their failures 'diverge', so I wasn't sure if the method converging to a different root would be accepted! thanks

would you mind explaining to me why it would converge to another root? I understand why it would diverge to infinity, but idk about my method! thanks
