HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 3 EGM 3344 Rootfinding and Optimization Concepts For all of these problems, feel free to use a simple Matlab program to calculate function values (like using a calculator) when the indicated approach is by hand. Rootfinding Problems from Chapra book chapters 5 and 6 Problem Approach Comments 5.8 Hand Make the plot in part (a) using Matlab and use the plot to estimate an initial guess for the root. Do the rest of the problem by hand starting with a lower guess of 0.5 and upper guess of 2. Put your intermediate results in a table like in the answers below. 5.8 Matlab Repeat part (b) and (c) problem 5.8 but write two short Matlab programs (one for bisection and one for false position) to perform all the calculations. Output your intermediate results to a table like in the answers below. 6.4 Hand Make the plot in part (a) using Matlab and use the plot to estimate an initial guess for the root. Do the rest of the problem by hand starting with a guess of 0.3. Skip part (c). For part (d), use 0.001 δ =

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
