```I have tried to solve the roots of the simultaneous nonlinear equations
(x-4)^2 + (y-4)^2 = 5
x^2 + y^2 = 16

by writing this function:

nr2method[xl1_, xl2_, es1_] :=
Block[{x1, x2, ea, es, x1new, u, v},
u = (x1 - 4)^2 + (x2 - 4)^2 - 5;
v = x1^2 + x2^2 - 16;
ea = 100; es = es1;
For[i = 1, ea > es, i++,
(x1new[x1_, x2_] = x1 - (u*D[
v, x2] - v*D[u, x2])/(D[u, x1]*D[v, x2] - D[u, x2]*D[v, x1]);
If[i == 1, x1 = xl1, x1 = b];
x2 = xl2;
b = x1new[x1, x2];
ea = Abs[(b - x1)/b 100];
Clear[x1, x2, x1new];)];
ea = 100; es = es1;
For[i = 1, ea > es, i++,
(x2new[x1_, x2_] = x2 - (v*D[u, x1] - u*D[v, x1])/(D[u, x1]*D[v, x2] -
D[u, x2]*D[v, x1]);
If[i == 1, x2 = xl2, x2 = c];
x1 = xl1;
c = x2new[x1, x2];
ea = Abs[(c - x2)/c 100];
Clear[x1, x2, x2new];)];
Print["The value of x1 is ", b];
Print["The value of x2 is ", c];]

Is this function a good one? Is there a way to make this function simpler?
