# What is the difference between the graphical and numerical methods of finding the solution of an equation?

The graphical method is often approximate but can be applied to any function. If done on a computer, the region surrounding the solution can be enlarged to obtain more accurate estimates.

A numerical method will give an exact result is an analytical solution is possible. If not, the solution will depend on the numerical method used and, sometimes, the starting "guesstimate". Wiki User
