Could someone please explain to me how to do false position?
For example, "a quantity; its half and its third are added to it. It becomes 10. What is the quantity?"
The algebraic way:
we want 12, so 12/11/3=36/11
Does anyone see where I went wrong? It should be 60/11, not 72/11. Does anyone know of an easy way of choosing the x value?
Thank you very much
