(13 points) a) (7 points) Assuming f(x) = 0.1x2 ~ 33in(x), use the false position method to locate a root of f (x) starting from initial guesses of x1 = 2.0 and xu = 10.0. Iterate until the approximate percent error an falls below 25%. Record your iterations in the table below. Maintain four decimal places in all calculations.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• 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.
