Unformatted text preview: Hint: To find c, we need to solve equation that will result in the following 40 = 9 . 8 68 . 1 ( 1 ! ! !" . ! !" ) or in other words, we need to solve = 9 . 8 68 . 1 1 ! ! !" . ! !" 40 = Problem 2 For the function = 3 + sin ! , find one root in the interval [0,1] (i.e. ! = , ! = 1 using the bisection method. Terminate your calculations when you are certain that the error between your approximation and actual solution to the equation = is less that 0.05. Explain why and how you decided to stop further iterations of bisecting the interval. Problem 3 Comment on the pro-s and con-s of the bisection and false position methods (the false position method was discussed at the end of the lecture on September 1 st , 2011)....
