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

X2 = 2(0)3 + 1 = 0.2      

                  5

X3 = 2(0.2)3 + 1 = 0.216

X10 = 0.22183

Failure: -

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)

                 2

      x = g(x)

  2. Numerical Method (Maths Investigation)

    we have derived the formula: The root can be found by keep on using this Xn+1 formula, until a small difference between the last Xn and the new Xn can be observed, maybe only the sixth decimal place onward (going onto seventh decimal place, eighth decimal place and so on)

    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

  2. Change of Sign Method

    However the integer search does not show a change of sign between x=2 and x=3 and therefore misses the 2 roots shown in the graph: x -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 y -71 1 43 61 61 49 31 13 1 1 19 This is therefore a failure of the change of sign method.
