#### Exercise 1.36

Modified fixed-point procedure to print guesses:

Solving $x \mapsto \frac { \log 1000 } {\log x}$ without average-damping:

Solving $x \mapsto \frac { \log 1000 } {\log x}$ with average-damping:

As we can see there are 34 guesses without avg-damping and only 9 guesses with avg-damping. Clearly we can see here how damping makes fast converge.
