I am having a hard time understanding and picturing what an iteration is.
Could someone please elaborate a little on what an iteration is and what exactly it did in this specific exercise?
I believe in the context of this lesson, an iteration refers to a step, ie, a step towards a lower error value
Wonderful, it is now clear. Thank you!

b value did this program converge?” and the answer is 47. How are we supposed to have arrived at the number 47? Thanks.
