This paper explains methods of numerical analysis which appear on Cardano's Ars Magna and Newton's Principia. Cardano's method is secant method, but its actual al]plication is severely limited by technical difficulties. Newton's method is what nowadays called Newton-Raphson's method. But mysteriously, Newton's explanation had been forgotten for two hundred years, until Adams rediscovered it. Newton had even explained finding the root using the second degree Taylor's polynomial, which shows Newton's greatness.
