Write a matlab program, for a given fixed point equation, x=g(x), runs the fixed point algorithm xnew = g(xold) until either two consecutive approximation to the root are close enough (tolerance 10^-10), or divergence is determined.

The equation I will be using is xnew = ((x*e^(x/20))/arctan(x) where x = xold.

I am new to matlab and need some help writing the program. My book wont be here for another week and I need this done by teusday.
