Use the bisection method or a graphing calculator to find the coordinates of the two points on the graph of that lie r = 1 unit from the origin. Give the result to the nearest hundredth, I just need a direction to go on this problem

  • Algebra -

    Distance formula
    1=((x-0)^2 +(x^3-0)^2)^1/2
    1=(x^2+x^6)
    0=x^6+x^2-0
    Use x=1 and x=.5
    Use bisection method
    to continue to the nearest tenth
    x=.83 and y=.83^3=y=.56
    The points are -.83,-.56,.56,and .83
