The initial condition is a room full of people . The goal is to identify the oldest
person . However , deeper issues have to be explored before a solution can be
proposed . For example , how do you determine how old a person is ? Can you
Start with the initial approximation 1 . 2. As long as the approximation isn't close
enough , repeatedly : a . Refine the approximation using the formula
newApproximation ( oldApproximation + N / oldApproximation ) / 2 . While

The choice of negative numbers in the assignments makes it obvious to the user
that these are not " real " rolls , but simply initial values for priming the loop .
Since these numbers do not equal each other , the loop test will succeed , and
