x^3-x-10=0
when x=2 and x=3
substitute 2 into the equation 2^3-2-10
= -4
when x=3
x^3-x-10
substitute 3^3-3-10
18-3-10= 15-10= 5
-4,5
there is a change in sign, there is a solution between 2 and 3.

Hi there, does any one know how to work out the following:
A solution to the equation x(to power of three) -x -10 =0 lies between 2 and 3. Use a trail and improvement method to find the solution to 1 decimal Place
You must have covered some form of interval reduction or bisection where you find the sign of the two end points and then evaulate the function in the "middle". The root will occur in the sub (half) interval which contains a sign change. Then repeat until you get the desired accuracy.
