Looking at the graph we find that the roots lie between these intervals:
[-2,-1]  [0,1]  [1,2]

Finding root interval between [0,1] using a Decimal Search

Solve 2x3 – 5x + 1 = 0

Re-arrange this so that “X=….”

  • 2x3 – 5x + 1 = 0

      2x3 +1 = 5x

      2x3 = 5x – 1

      x3 = 5x – 1

                 2

      x = (5x – 1)

    The iterative formula calculates these values as they converge. xr+1 = 1/4( x3r+2x2r-4.58) x1 = 1/4(( -1)3+2(-1)2-4.58) =1/4(-1+2-4.58) =1/4(-3.58) x1 = -0.895 The following table was obtained using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, with the formulae shown. The sequence works using this particular iterative formula because when the gradient of y=g(x)

  2. Change of Sign Method

    bounds are likely to be between x=-1.65115 and x=-1.65105 but this must be justified by showing that there is a change of sign between the two. When x=-1.65115 y=-0.00067 and when x=-1.65105 y=0.00051. As there is a change of sign between the two there must be a root there.

    We have therefore found the root to 0 decimal places, which equals 2. One can not determine the root at this stage to 1 decimal place because either: x<1.85, in which case the root would be x=1.8 to 1 decimal place or: x?1.85, in which case the root would be

  1. Methods of Advanced Mathematics (C3) Coursework.

    I began by using the change of sign method. This gave me an Idea of where my solutions would be. I then found the respective figures to substitute into the Newton-Raphson iterative formula: Xn+1=xn- (f (xn)/(f' (xn) For this my equation will be f (x)=2x^5-5x^3+1 This was the beginning stages of this method and shows the change of signs I had to investigate.
