Calculate the fixed point of cosine in Ruby.
TOLERANCE = 0.00000000000000000001
def tolerance_equals?(a, b)
((a - b) * (a - b)) < TOLERANCE
end
def recursive_cosine_fixedpoint(a)
return a if tolerance_equals?(a, Math.cos(a))
recursive_cosine_fixedpoint(Math.cos(a))
end
puts "The fixed point of cosine is #{recursive_cosine_fixedpoint(1)}"
# The fixed point of cosine is 0.7390851331706995
