I can't get how the bisection method from the video (square root) is applied to the problem set. It is not the same problem as the square root, it is to keep guessing the lowest payment which pays off the balance within a year but that is not shown.

    Tips: - You will be using the min and max payments as upper and lower boundaries to the bisection method - The test will be performed on the remaining balance after the 12 month iteration. Depending on the balance's sign you will reassign either the upper or lower boundary accordingly. Does that kind of help? Any more and it would be the whole solution I guess!
