(b) Use the Bisection method to Fnd an approximation to within 10-5 to the Frst positive value of x with x = 2 sin x . #12 ±ind an approximation to √ 3 correct to within 10-4 using the Bi-section Algorithm (hint: consider f ( x ) = x 2-3). #15 ±ind a bound for the number of iterations needed to achieve an approximation with accuracy 10-4 to the solution of x 3-x-1 = 0 lying in the interval [1 , 2]. ±ind an approximation to the root with this degree of accuracy. 1...
