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.
At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga.
Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus.
Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.
- 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!
What is the balances 'sign' and the12 month iteration ?
(bwo explanation I suffer from extreme anxiety due to past events and I have problems concentrating and absorbing things at present)
Also , I am a complete beginner at Python, I only know a little Java
