I am following the material for MIT 6.00 Spring 2011 currently working on Problem Set 1 part c.... This is about Credit Card debt. I did a search on google and other people were working on PS1 but it was about Prime Numbers... Am I on the right material?
Does any one want to work together on these PSs? I've hit a wall with the bisection search. I thought I understood it but I am unable to apply it to to the credit solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The code from the class that goes over the bisection search is pretty close to what you need to use. If you break that code apart piece by piece and reapply it to your search you should be able to get it to work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Patrick, My really short answer is: Pick average of HI and LOW as GUESS. If GUESS is too low replace LOW by GUESS. If GUESS is too high replace HI by GUESS. Repeat until converged within error limit. Did that help?
