In numerical analysis, methods for finding roots play a pivotal role in the field of many real and practical applications. The efficiency of numerical methods depends upon the convergence rate (how fast the particular method converges). The objective of this study is to compare the Bisection method, Newton-Raphson method, and False Position Method with their limitations and also analyze them to know which of them is more preferred. Limitations of these methods have allowed presenting the latest research in the area of iterative processes for solving non-linear equations. This paper analyzes the field of iterative methods which are developed in recent years with their future scope.
