The Bisection and the Newton methods were employed to solve a single-variable problem using FORTRAN programming language for its implementation. The root obtained from the bisection algorithm after few iterations is compared with the root obtained from the Newton algorithm. The Newton method is found to be more efficient, having much smaller error, fast convergence rate (fewer number of iterations) and in agreement with [1] in the study of some methods of numerical evaluation (secant, bisection, and Newton) to achieve an adaptive scheme.
