Math 151A HW #1, due Friday, January 12 - Reading: sections 1.1, 1.3, 1.4 and the matlab code given below (com- pare with algorithm 2.1. from the textbook, page 47). - Problems from section 2.1: #1 (with a hand calculator), #2(a) (with a hand calculator), #7(ab), #12, #15 (for the longer calculations, you can use one of the codes posted on the class webpage). #1 Use the Bisection method to Fnd p 3 for f ( x ) = x - cos x on [0 , 1]. #2(a) Let f ( x ) = 3( x + 1)( x - 1 2 )( x - 1). Use the Bisection method on the following intervals to Fnd p 3 : (a) [ - 2 , 1 . 5] #7 (a) Sketch the graphs of y
