This is a code implementing the Newton Raphson method (for polynomials) for a school project. This method helps you find the zero(es) of a function and in the code you need to know the zero beforehand as the zero that you enter as an initial guess in this program is supposed to be in a 0.1 decimal point threshold. The polynomial for which our teacher checked us where the program did not fully work is: 4x^4  2x^3 92x^2 + x + 45. The program worked when 4.5, one zero of the function was entered, but the program did not work when 0.7 was entered for the function although it was within a 0.1 threshold of the actual zero (0.701....). I know the error is on line 95 which I palpably pointed out above since this is the error I keep getting when I enter 0.7: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 1000 at NewtonRaphsonMethod.main(NewtonRaphsonMethod.java: 95). Please no hints or sarcastic replies, I just need a full answer to how to solve this, I understand that the problem is related to the array but I still can't wrap my head around why 4.5 would work but 0.7 did not even though I entered the correct zero near 0.7 for the function and it still didn't work.

Re: NewtonRaphson java code help
4.5 isn't a root of that polynomial (f(4.5) == 364.5); My Jenkins Traub implementation gives the following roots:
5.0107051936
4.4879589227
0.7187625169
0.696016246
Try a first approximation to the left of the smallest root and to the right of the largest root.
kind regards,
