Hiya gang. I am currently in need of help (again! Bollocks!). Currently, i am unsure of where to start because, well, quite simply, I am not that smart. The problem is as follows:
Develop a program that will solve the transcendental equation x = cos(2x) to within +/- .0001 radians. Use whichever type of loop you want to. THE TRICKY PART is that even through there is only one answer, you may need to try some different approaches to find it.
So my question, is huh?
What would be the most logical way to approach this. I'm not hip on the trig aspect as it's been about 13 years since i've taken a trig class. Something tells me this is a lot more complicated than just putting in an equation and running it. Frankly, I am not sure what is being asked.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
