guidelines for the Machine Problem (

*Numerical Methods*) has been posted. i got this from e-LeAP.

Thu, Aug 21, 2008 -- 008.02.MATH112.4CSA: MACHINE PROB. NO. 1 - ROOT FINDING

Instructions :

1. Your machine problem will be based on the last digit of your student number. Student numbers ending in 1&2 will develop Regula-Falsi or False Position method, 3&4 Fixed-point method, 5&6 Secant method, 7&8 Newton's method, 9&0 Muller's method.

2. Use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in developing your program. This is preferred in order to visualize the transition of values as you perform your iterations.

3. Non-running programs will not be credited.

4. Deadline for submission is on Thursday, August 28, 2008 regardless of any class suspension.

5. Submit your programs via e-leap (Assignment Section) ONLY. Submissions thru digital dropbox, e-mails, usb, diskettes or any other means will not be credited.

there.. i provided a list of students, methods and equations already taken as follows:
