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

    These can be improved the accuracy. Assume X=1.5213 f(x)=(1.5213)^3-1.5213-2=-0.00047 X=1.5214 f(x)=(1.5214)^3-1.5214-2=0.000121 Because the answer is -0.00047<0<0.000121. So the answer must between 1.5213 and 1.5214. However , these are not the exact answer so I have to estimate them. In this case, X=1.5213.5, so the error bound is .
