Using the Intermediate ValueTheorem, explain how the Bisection Method works. Problem 1.3. Determine a solution to cos ( x ) = x using the Bisection Method. Problem 1.4. Determine the real roots of the polynomial p ( x ) = x 10 25 x 5 + 10 x 15 using the Bisection Method. Problem 1.5. Solve the equation x cos( x ) = 0 using the Bisection Method. Problem 1.6. Show that if p ( x ) is an odddegree polynomial, then there is a real number x such that p ( x ) = 0 . Problem 1.7. Find a real root of p ( x ) = x 11 + 2 x 2 20 x + 30 using the Bisection Method. 2 Newtons Method Problem 2.1. State the Mean Value Theorem . Problem 2.2. Suppose that z is such that f ( z ) = z . Let > and suppose that x [ z ,z + ] with x 6 = z . Suppose also that  f ( x )  < 1 for all x [ z ,z + ] . Show that  f ( x z  <  x z  . [ Use the Mean Value Theorem. ] Problem 2.3. Approximate 6 5 using Newtons Method.using Newtons Method....
