Is that correct?Answer by jim_thompson5910(28593)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I'm not 100% familiar with the topic of function iterates, but my guess is that you plug in an initial value x = x0 to get x1 = f(x0). Then you plug in x1 = f(x0) to get x2 = f(f(x0)), etc etc to generate a sequence of values. If that's the case, then you are correct.
