# False position method Calculator

## Calculates the root of the given equation f(x)=0 using False position method.

 Select a and b such that f(a) and f(b) have opposite signs, and find the x-intercept of the straight line connected by two points(a,f(a), (b, f(b)).This method converges more rapidly than the Bisection method.
