Iterative formula for Newton Raphson method is given by $\mathrm{x}(1)=\mathrm{x}(0)+\frac{f(x(0))}{f^{\prime} x(x(0))}$
Hence $x_{0}=1$ (initial guess), $f\left(x_{0}\right)=6$ and $f^{\prime}\left(x_{0}\right)=7$. Substituting the values in the equation we get $x_{1}=1.857$ which is $1.86$ rounded to 2 decimal places.
