Hello, I am writing a program that uses the secant method to search for a root of f(x) = 3x^2 +
sin(x) - e^x, given two values (a and b)
Why is it that every time I run the program the "non existent slope" failure runs, is there
something wrong with that if loop? It always seems to execute even if fabs(a-b) is NOT .00001.
Here is the code (c++) :
Any suggestions or possibly the solution to fix or improve this code would be great.
Solution
Look it would be better if you place your code inside the try catch block because by doing so you
can get the actual error, and if the try catch does'nt give any error then the problem is in your
logic.
here the code which is more prone to error is in the non-existent slope if condition
