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

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 change of sign method was the simplest available to me and was very quick and easy to use. Unlike the two other methods there were no formula required. Each time I repeated the method the solution became more accurate and the route's accuracy increased to another significant figure was found.

    This tell us that the roots lie somewhere within this interval; Therefore the root is 0.25 � 0.05 Second interval x f(x) 0.2 0.208 0.21 0.1693 0.22 0.1306 0.23 0.09217 0.24 0.05382 0.25 0.01562 0.26 -0.02242 0.27 -0.06032 0.28 -0.09805 0.29 -0.1356 The table shows that the sign changes within the interval 0.25 to 0.26.

    This rearrangement clearly worked as the graph is converging - i.e. it is getting closer and closer to the point where the solution is present. Therefore this rearrangement works The above is the graph of y=3x5-x2+0.31 (blue line), y=x (red line).

    To find the root I need to work out the iterative formula for the Newton Raphson. This is: Therefore To find the root between x=-1 and x=-2 I will use a =-1 as this is close to the solution and should find the right root.

    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 .
