 Estimate the cube root of 270 2008-03-11 From Tom:(a) By plotting suitable graphs, estimate to one decimal place the cube root of 270. (b) With reference to your answer to part (a), use 8 iterations of a Bisection Search to refine your estimate. Use the nearest whole numbers either side of your estimate from part (a) as starting values. (c) Using either of your starting values from part (b) as first guess, use the Newton-Raphson method to find the true value of the root (to 6 decimal places). Repeat using the other starting value from part (b) and compare the two results.Answered by Harley Weston.
