# Double False Position

Compute by double false position, to three decimal places, the root of: x^3 - 36x + 72 =0 that lies between 2 and 3.

* He gave us the following formula to use when using double false position:

x(subscript 2)y(sub1)-x(sub1)y(sub2)/y(sub1)- y(sub2)

I couldn't figure out how to get subscripts to show up!
