Default Q2 - fixed point depending on the initial guess

I tried to answer Q2 by calculating the values of the bounds via an iterative method similar to the one used for sample complexity bounds on page 57 of the book. Was I doing this wrong, is it possible to find an explicit form of those inequalities? In case of the Devroye bound it seems that different values of the initial guess converge to different fixed points in case of an iterative method... Where can one learn more about those implicit inequalities e.g. why and when does this iterative approach work?
