Use the bisection method to find a root of the function

Using JKGraph:

Since *f(0) < 0* and *f(3) > 0*, we use the bisection method
on the closed interval [0,1].

- On the
*Formulas*menu, choose*Function Formula: Y=F(X)*. - At the prompt
*F(X) =*, type inx^3-7*x-4 - Click on the button
*Edit Solve Domain*. - At the prompt,
*First Point X-Coordinate:*, enter 0. - At the prompt,
*Second Point X-Coordinate:*, enter 3. - At the prompt,
*Solution Method*, click on*Successive Bisections*. - At the prompt,
*Output Format*, click on*Table of Values*. - At the prompt,
*Automatic/Manual*, click on*Automatic Animation*. - Click on the
*OK*button twice and you will see the graph of the function. - Finally, click on the
