**The Method of False Position**

The Rhind papyrus (see page 295) contained solutions to several mathematical problems. Some of these solutions made use of a procedure called the method of false position. Research the *method of false position* and write a report that explains this method. In your report, include a specific mathematical problem and its solution by the method of false position.

To determine

**To explain:**

The Method of False Position.

This method attempts to solve an equation of the form f(x) = 0.

The method of False Position is a modification of the Bisection method. Instead of halving the interval on which there exists a root r of f, we use the root of the line joining the points

By similar triangles we have

And so,
