Bisection, Newton's, and secant method help!
Can't seem to find the answer to this one.
Using the bisection method, Newton's method, and the secant method, find the largest positive root correct to three decimal places of x^3-5x+3=0. (Hint: All roots are in [-3, +3]).
Not really sure what the bisection method is but here's the newton's method and the secant method.
Newton's Method: Xn+1=Xn-(f(xn)/f '(xn)
Secant Method: Xn+1=Xn-((Xn-Xn-1)/(f(xn)-f(xn-1))) * f(xn)
Any help would be appreciated!
